The last rotary


This may be the last rotary phone…and from the amount of dust on the cord and the top of the receiver, it hasn’t been used in a while.

(Spotted at the Dixie Dog, where if you sit at the counter for lunch, a friendly waitress named Kay will be happy to talk. And where the cook, having completed the lunch rush, said she was going outside to “smoke a piece” of her cigarette.)

  1. Ha! We still have a ‘rotary’. It sits in the centre of the house, still connected, and its ring can be heard from all over the house. In contrast to the weedy digital phones whose sibilant tones so easily are drowned out by the TV or any other noise-emitting object.
