Good Morning Gentle Readers,
The other day SASOB left a comment that included this.....
I'll never forget the time a customer brought his kids into my buddy's antique shop and tried to explain some old Victrola cylinder recordings to them: best he could do was, well kids, those were like cds or dvds. Almost as fun as the look on a kid's face when you show them a rotary dial telephone.
And you notice, we still call it dialing.....
This still-operational rotary dial telephone can be found in the ornate lobby of the The Tower, Beverly Hills (formerly the Lowes, Beverly Hills). Note the original, fabric covered phone cord. Click to enlarge the photo.
Dial: HOllywood 3-5151 and ask for Extension 6
Oh, and dinner was nicely done and the wine list is extensive.
