Crave geeked out at the Telephone Museum of New Mexico in Albuquerque as part of its tour of Nerdy New Mexico.
This Magneto coin collector telephone on exhibit was in use in Columbus, N.M., between 1908 and 1956. Instructions on the front say, "Call the Central Office in the usual way. Do not deposit money until told by operator." If payphones still looked as awesome as this one, maybe there'd be more of them around.
