“The old-school landline telephone”

Diane Schirf writes about a relic, “the old-school landline telephone”: And another relic: “The sound of the telephone bell clanging loudly and all the household teenage zombies coming to life with a shout of ‘I’ll get it!’”

[For years I had a thrift-store Model 500 in my office, a present from my children. Its ring startled and delighted visitors. I’ll get it!]

Your desk phone looks a lot like our wall phone. Boy, I hated misdialing. And it was usually one of the last numbers I would get wrong.

That’d be the Model 554. That’s what we had when I was a kid.
