Post 994: Long Distance

1940’s telephone – $80

1940’s Bell System – Western Electric Black Rotary Phone Telephone with breaded chords in working condition. A Bay Area Telephone.

Hello? Is this the Sparky residence? I’m trying to reach the 1940s. Apparently they only had one black Bell System Western Electric Rotary Phone Telephone with breaded chords in working condition. What are those little circle things for? What did they use to bread the chord? How do you even make a chord solid long enough to bread it? Operator, let’s forget about this call.
