I have a corded hardline phone from 1984 or so -- I bought it for myself. I got it for the enormous padded earpiece it has, which made long conversations far more comfortable.
Old and decrepit as it is, it still works. It was pressed into service again when the newer Sony wired headset
I bought a few years back decided to die recently.
Even if it's not flashy or beep-y, there's something reassuring about having old, reliable stuff around.
Used to love my grandma's phone, it was an old black rotary phone, plugged into the wall, with a cord. Dialing it was kinda fun!
I remember when pushbutton phones were Very Exciting!
hope the photo shoot went well.
