551 Army Phone

Army Phone

     My friend found this phone for me at an antique fair. Working rotary phones are very rare now. I just love them. The sound, the weight, the way a secretary would use her pencil to dial because her nails were too long, things like that.
     This one happens to be an army phone. I can just imagine someone using it to call home and tell us all that wars are no more.
