I had lunch downtown today at the 4th St Corridor. There are lots of shops and restaurants along that stretch of 4th St.

That is where by chance I found the Telephone Museum of New Mexico. It's been around for 11 years and is now housed on three floors...who knew??

Of course I just happened to have my camera ready.

The museum houses phones that were in service in New Mexico from it's introduction up to 1984. This was the year the government disbanded AT&T for having a monoply.

This was the actual phone used by the local telephone operator to warn of the attack of Pancho Villa on Columbus, New Mexico, March 9th, 1916
I'm out.
