Black wall mounted rotary phone - North Haven Island, Maine
My parents used to have two phones in the house when I grew up. A beige version of this phone (circa 1968) that hung on the wall in the kitchen. The other one was a desk model up in my parents bedroom. That is it.. no answering machine, no fax, certainly no internet. If you called and my parents were home they would answer the phone - no caller id either. If they weren't home, you would have to call again later. Much simpler times. I learned to dial phones on a phone like this.
Bruce Wayne has nothing on this kid.
If Batman ever saw this photo, I am certain he would burn his regimentals in shame. Come on, man, you didn't even have chin ties. My brother Brandon, approximately age 3 (this is a guess), sporting a craftily improvised Batman costume that my mother created around the t-shirt he's wearing. Awesome.
