A great shot of nostalgia captured here!! I remember how advertisers would sing their telephone numbers by creating a word at the beginning, just like FULTON in this photo. We used to hear "NATIONAL - 2" many times. Makes you wonder why emergency # was 9-1-1 and not 1-1-1, especially when waiting for the dial to return after dialing "9". :-)

I remember those. We even had a crank one, with no dial, that got the operators attention and then you her the number.

Seems so old. But I remember them well. Even remember how new they seemed when we got one instead of the old crank phone. Time flies.

A fabulous image! That goes way back. I have not seen a rotary phone in a long time. I love the black and white and the grittiness. 5*
