Old Phones in Old Photos
« on: November 27, 2020, 10:32:12 PM »
From time to time I come across good photos of our hobby subject back when they were in everyday use.

Models shown here in a store in Texas (1943), and an insurance office in LA (1949).

A collector of  'Monochrome Phones with Sepia Tones'   ...and a Duck!
