Just call Midway 4-2029--that was my telephone number when I was a kid. Fighting for telephone time with my brother and sisters was almost as bad as dealing with today's internet issues. And yes, we had hackers then too. They came in the form of moms on the extension (if you had an extension) and the neighbors listening in to you and your boyfriend on the party line.
This sturdy telephone would make a great prop for plays or your retro room. Bonus! I connected it to my modem and it rings and receives calls just fine. I was unable to place outgoing calls, probably due to the rotary dial system. I guess you will just have to have the operator connect your outbound calls.
Telephone cord included.
