Is that Eleanor Roosevelt on the line?

I am not an antique collector.  I don’t know one style of 18th century furniture from another.  What I like is, well, “old stuff,” or what some might less charitably refer to as “junk.”   What thrills me is finding an item, however basic, that represents some unique part of our American experience.  I have a 100-year-old railroad oil lamp, a number of old fountain pens, a piece of early avionics (straight off a cannibalized B-17) and easily the most enjoyable part of my little collection a vintage 1930’s telephone.
