27/01/2016   Photo a Day  Telephone

This is similar to the telephone we had as kids in Neutral Bay back in the fifties I even remember the number XY 4553 which became 90 4553 about 1959 or 60.When we moved tot he country you had to pick up the phone and wait for the exchange to answer and give them the number you wanted.

I have two of these Bridge Chairs and I love them , they are so comfortable to sit  and sew or sit and read.They were given to me by a friend in bad condition as they had been lying around in their barn for years and I had them restored about twenty years ago.
