An original press picture from 1956, used in a newspaper at that time. Bought this one recently and I think it fits very well with the collection. Besides the phones itself it is sometimes tempting to also collect some accessoires and other stuff. Where does it end…
I really like the atmosphere that the image reflects. The clean monochrome photography is really beautifully done. It has a certain charm.
The picture was published on Sunday November 11, 1956. I am not aware in which newspaper that was.
“The Ericofon, a new one piece telephone, was tested by Miss Claire Jensen, a secretary at a Chicago hotel. The model is about half the size of the conventional two piece phone. The Ericofon combines the dial, speaking and hearing apparatus into a single unit.”
The phone used is most likely an old case Taj Mahal. I guess the model they refer to in the text is not Miss Claire… 😉
