We had our phone in the hallYou had to sit on the stairs
That must have been rough, John!! I remember when we moved the phone into the kitchen and on the wall no less!!
Indeed you could watch tv without cable...now if I wan to turn on my tv it's all static so I put in a tape, maybe it's time to get the 'standard cable' especially around Christmas I love to watch tv
Everything has changed so quickly it seems, Lorraine. But progress can be good and we all evolve along with it....hopefully.
Seems so quaint now, doesn't it?
Sure does, Debra. But simple was/is good I feel.
i remember the first color tv!
I remember our first B/W TV, Joyce. Our house was always filled with neighbourhood kids just before supper time!!
What a beautiful telephone table and chair! I love the items that you are adding to your shop!
Funny thing Louise, but this table and chair may not make it to shop after all!! I listed it on line a few people want it tomorrow....but first come first serve, I say!!
We had a little telephone table built in, in the hall. The phone had a mile-long chord so I culd take the phone in my room for those importatnt teenaged conversations!! Beautiful table!
Oh those long extension cords, Lisa! I remember those and my sisters stretching them beyond their limits!! Don't know why guys didn't do this!!
Simple was the norm so long ago, a Valve Radio, copper and tubs, 6 bay milking shed, bike to get to school, and so much more, love the table and chair set, perfect for the phone book and a seat to rest on. Jean.
Hi Jean! yes, those days were quite different in so many ways....not better necessarily but simply different from today.
That's a nice set, are you going to refinish the chair? I know I say I don't want any more furniture, but I think if it wasn't so far away, I could find a place for it. ;-)
Control yourself Sharon!! lolI gave it a good cleaning and then applied two coats of my favourite oil....Tung oil. It fills in the dried areas nicely. I don't usually like to refinish anything vintage if it has a good patina already. But that would be in the eye of the beholder I guess.
What a lovely set. Things were simpler and people were more cordial. I just don't get today's phone culture.
I used to have such a cute telephone table. The bottom had doors that opened onto a small cabinet where the phone book could be stored. Hearts were cut out in the doors. The table and chair are beautiful.Love,Janie
Our house in San Diego (built in 1924) had its original phone niche with a drop-down seat (that folded into the wall below the phone shelf). We actually bought a retro phone for the spot and loved it. I love your finds!
Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
