Clip to ScrapBook #22

I can visualize him with the phone and you laughing in the background.

We had a harvest gold rotary phone attached to the wall in the kitchen. My grandparents had a older style black phone which sat on a shelf in a hallway near the dining room. The shelf was actually part of a built in cove in the wall. It had a more narrow storage space as well below where the phone was found. It was for the phonebook.

I remember my grandparents phone number for some reason. It started with letters. It was LA 1- 0667. LA did not stand for Los Angeles. They lived in Dallas, Texas and I have no idea what the LA stood for. Maybe it was a neighborhood abbreviation.

I also remember that there were pieces of furniture made for the desk style phones. There was a raised desk area to hold the phone. It was small. Then there was a chair connected where you could sit down to make or receive your call. I have not seen one of those in an antique store in a long time.

Here is pic of one.
