Brick Cell Phone


From the website:




Just5 Brick is a reliable cell phone with big buttons and minimum set of basic functions for people who just need to make and receive calls.

Above, uranium glass at an antique shop.

Below, a strange toilet at a Gordonsville restaurant.

Finally, a rare 1904 Northern Electric telephone.

Glass is really useful for stuff like this.

Like having an excellent personal secretary, only better.


Note added at 9:47 p.m. Sunday night in response to the comment of reader Saul Castellanos who wrote "Hello Joseph, I cannot sleep tonight until you tell us what the note actually says on top of that toilet."

Your wish is my demand:
