Shown is a 1939 Western Electric model 302 desk phone. I enjoy restoring these old phone and using them. It has a most wonderful, mechanical clicking sound when dialed. One day, my niece, Sammi, asked me, Uncle Mike, how do you use this type of phone? She really enjoyed using it after I showed her how it works. I'm glad I grew up in the days of dial phones.
