~ Vintage telephones... pink wall mounted phone...

Now that is a good looking phone! I love these color telephones, that were mounted on the kitchen wall.  I can recall the my Aunt having this same style of phone, in her kitchen for decades. It was turquoise. And loud as hell when it rang. This is when you could be outside playing... and hear the phone ringing over all the racket you were making in the yard. And go running to answer the phone.  :)   

She kept that same phone well into the 1990's before she had it removed. Yes, removed. Even though it had hanged, in her kitchen, since around 1961. She has never "owned" it.  After all those years of paying that monthly fee, for a Bell telephone.  They still came out and got it from her! When she finally broke down and had it replaced with a push button phone. 

This ad is from 1959. And I have one of these too in the collection...
