Tales from the Thrift

Brinnng, Brinnng! It’s 1974 Calling!

We found this fantastic, rotary telephone at an estate sale today. We’ve been looking for one to add to our retro tech collection but when we saw that this one was in Irwin Allen orange, we had to buy it. The previous owner still had it attached to the wall! We went to lunch after and were tempted to take it into the restaurant and talk on it like it was a cell phone. If we had, we probably would have ended up on quite a few social media feeds.

“Look, kids! That’s how we communicated before we had mobile phones.” Talk about Life on Mars!
