QUEEN MARY Stateroom Telephone

Telephone 002ImageTelephones like the one pictured above from my collection were available in First Class staterooms aboard Queen Mary.  In the center of the face is a note that reads “You Can Call Telephone To Anywhere In The World Whilst At Sea”.  In our modern world, telephoning to any part of the world is a given but in 1936, it was a luxury of high technology, especially aboard ship in the middle of the North Atlantic.  The actress Marion Davies is seen in the other picture using the phone enroute.
