Once upon a time, everyone had one of these. In basic black. It was a big deal when color was introduced. BTW, our phone company charges us a couple of dollars a month for "touch tone service" - c'mon - when WAS the last time anyone used a rotary dial?
Have an old phone like one of these for the desk top in our kitchen. Very reliable - withstands lightning hitting lines and ringing the phone. We have lost many modern phones, modems, answering machines and etc., but the old phone still works!
mimeograph machine This was how the teacher made copies. In school, everyone called it the ditto machine. If the paper was still a bit wet when you got it, the ink would rub off on your fingers. I can still smell the ink :)
