Had some wires going to it but seemed to be disconnected. This is a home built in 1955 and there were a few of these hooked up around the home along the trim. I was born a few decades after this so I could use a little help in identifying it!
Old phone connection.
Phone connection block. I’m so old
Once upon a time we had these things called landlines and connected devices called telephones so we could talk to each other over copper wire.
Odd I know.
appears to be missing it’s cover…
Yes sir, got them still in my house.
Yep, that is for sure.
I never paid a phone company for my land line phone internally. Give me the interface box outside and I am all set after that. Now the phone through my internet is a different story. LOL
It is missing a cover.
I still have a couple of these old phones. Last year when I went to the cable TV office they had a display of theses on a table. I walked up to the display and was looking at them when the YOUNG lady at the desk informed me I should not touch the antiques. Yep, I’m old
HA, HA, HA unless it was a candlestick phone there’s nothing antique about it. Grew up with a land line in the dining room. If you called a girl the whole house could eavesdrop on your side of the conversation. When I wanted privacy I walked to the corner and used a pay phone, Don’t see those anymore either!
What is that ? An ATM machine?
225 exchange was the first numbers of my childhood phone number
it was know as BA (Baldwin) before that!! Willowdale Ontario, Canada
Doug, ours was WI (Windsor) 66-777.
LOL . You are making me feel old!!! Telephone wires.
Wow, I didn’t realize iPhone charger connections used to be so different!
Grap the tip and ring (green and red) while someone trying to ring you. Charging voltage is a little different too!
Ouch! 48 volts there.
