1930s phone without the wires

Retro look updated with 900MHz


The retro phone look has gotten a bit out of hand (unintentional pun) but, if you're going to do it, at least finish the job with the entire phone--not just half.

From that perspective, we must give some credit to the designers of this 1930s replica. Although it may look historically accurate from afar, closer inspection reveals a few things that weren't around in the days of Prohibition: a wireless handset and push-button dial among them.

Uber-Review notes that the phone carries only a 900MHz signal, but that would have been plenty to alert the backroom craps tables before cheesing it.
