      This is a very old black bakelite telephone. I see it everytime I visit my barber. This time I took my camera.

      OMG! I remember seeing dials like that when I was a kid!! And you telephoned by county! You picked up the phone, told the operator you wanted "Jefferson"3-5498.

      The reasoning behind this was that the phone companies didn't believe anyone could remember more than 5 numbers. So you asked for the "county" and then the 5 digit number.

      Wow ... I just truly dated myself!!

      Love these type 10 chrome dials, the best dials for iconic bakelite telephones.

      There is no letter "z". When I try to tell the people who only have used cell phones...they don't believe me.

      When I was a kid our phones didn't have a Q.
      Fantastic shot.
