Sepia Saturday Sepia Saturday November 10, 2012 smkelly8 14 Comments The prompt this week made me think of telephones. I think old phones have a certain charm. My favorite phone at home is a faux rotary phone. I think the new fangled cordless and cell phones lack a certain something.

I guess these have all been eplaced by internet shopping now.
Yes, but some sort of clerks are involved in the e-commerce.
The newfangled phones don’t look like the iconic image of a phone, but they are a lot more convenient.
I’m still not won over by mobile phones.
Ah!! Your choice of photograph would have gone well with those store catalogs I mentioned early in my post. I remember those rotary phones, from the ’60s, and I don’t think I’d have the patience for those anymore…
Do they take that much more patience? The connection was always better.
What a great photograph. There was a certain feel to those old Bakelite phones that you just don’t get with the modern day things.
I do agree, those old phones had heft, substance.
I wholeheartedly agree with your opinion re cell phones!
This brings back memories of sore fingers after dialing those rotary dial phones!
Yes, there is something rather glamorous about those old elegant phones of yesteryear isn’t there?
Well, you won’t get any argument from me, on that score.
