July 8th – Telephones

Today’s picture is of our old telephone. No, it’s not connected as we use VOIP, but we have kept it as a talking point 🤣.

It was a phone like this that got me interested in electronics as a young lad, and the rest as they say, is history.

The inspiration for the picture was taken from a conversation I had with my cousin, who now lives in Scotland. We don’t talk often but when we do it lasts a while, and it was great to catch up.

Texting, emails, IM’s etc are fine for a short message but I personally feel that they are over used these days.

It also reminds me of how fast technology in our world develops, as I still remember having to walk to the telephone box in the village if I wanted to chat to any friends. In less than 40 years, the change in our world has been amazing. I wonder what it will be like in another 40 years?
