A good life by the sea, in mixed Scottish weather.......
At least they always worked in power cuts and you didn't have to go hunting for the handset because someone hadn't returned it to the base station. There was something quite soothing about dialling a number and listening to the purring noise as it whirred back around :)
I have indeed done just that - and played with the dial just to hear the purring. :)
Brilliant things! We still have a corded phone now, but it's a push button one - not the same AT ALL.
Not the same at all is it. These are wonderful things.
Trying to think what you could possibly grow in a telephone now... or how else you might use it at work!!
Maria I have another job at a scrapyard which also uses 'loose parts' for schools play projects - the phone is heading there rather than to be planted. Good question though!
