Rotary dial telephone in my basement. This was long before they created the 773 area code.

Strowger 11 digit desk telephone -1905
Legend has it that Almon Brown Strowger was a mortician that believed his local operator was directing all business calls to his competitor, who happened to be her husband. Strowger felt that subscribers should have control over calls rather than operators. He patented the automatic telephone exchange a.k.a. dial service in 1891, eliminating the need for an operator to direct calls.

Went to the Portobello Market last Sunday. It was full of antiques, crepes, and weird old men. Good times. I didn’t buy anything at this one because everything was over priced (typical for antiques). However, on my walk back to the tube station I heard this fantastic man singing opera in the streets. Have I mentioned everything is amazing here? Because it is.
