      Hi, can I use this pic to illustrate the header of the "contacts" section of a website? In particular I'd like to cut the upper part and add a soft gradient (from transparent to black).

      The website is a description of educational/recreational activities that friends of mine will do next summer (www.campoavventura.com).

      If you want, i'll mention you with pleasure in "acknowledgements".

      @ trincio: Thanks for letting me know. If you could send me a link and give me an acknowledgement (with a link back to this page) then all the better. Thanks.

      I'm shooting a short film that's an homage to Italian thrillers of the 60's/70s.

      I have a scene that requires a cool telephone and am interested in a phone like the ones in your photo.

      Is there any way you can put me in touch with the person selling these phones at the Tynemouth flea market?

      Maybe I can order one from him/her.

      Thank you.

      Great photo. I just added it to a blog post. The organization I blog for is an initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is designed to help communities improve services for kids in the justice system with alcohol and drug issues; the webinar is a free service for professionals in the field.

      The post is scheduled to appear tomorrow at 7am EST (U.S.), so it should be live around noon your time on 5/18, assuming I'm right in guessing you're in Britain.

      intrigued to see this picture of very British 700 series phones today on a US site being used to illustrate an argument between the FCC (US equivalent of Ofcom) and their corporate telcos about backup power in case of mains failure! At least they credited you in the link..
