Vintage Telephone:

Seen enough and gone mad of latest communication gadgets like Apple I Pads, Blackberries,Smart phones & tablets. I got a Golden opportunity to come across this vintage Telephone used by some privileged great grandpas a century before! Lucky, had my camera ready with me!!

A nostalgic vintage Eiffel Tower telephone created in Stockholm Sweden by L. M. Ericsson from 1892 to 1929.  Black with antique brass accents, these beautiful telephones feature a rose wood body, a classic felted handset cord and a push button type numbers on round dial.

Vintage music Machine – HMV:

HMV Style 7:- 1899 – the His master’s Voice or HMV, is a famous music trademark, and was the name of a large record label for a number of years.

The name His master’s Voice or HMV was coined in the year 1899, from the title of painting of Nipper the dog listening to a gramophone.

Horn gramophones continued to be made right up to 1930. For the most part, however, they began to fall from favor in the early 1920’s. A few years before the First World War machines began to be made with the horn turned ‘upside-down’ and fitted inside the cabinet.

Bearing the beloved image of the hound with his ear turned to the brass trumpet; this delightful antique will be a prized collection for those who love this vintage music machine!

I found this master piece in a showcase of a hotel lobby at Chennai India. Truly a great subject for photography due to its rarity and I am happy I had my camera ready then and snapped a few close shots before some hotel staff could raise objections!
