Ok, to be honest, Millie isn’t really so much of a “Freak” as she is an avid collector of telephone equipment.  She’s got quite a collection too.  It ranges from very early models that Alexander Graham Bell might well have used (or helped design?) himself to the very latest in smartphone technology.

I think one of the really cool things about Millie’s collection is the fact that most of them work. Even many of the antique phones can still be connected to a phone line and used to make calls.  She was telling me the other day that she’s got two new additions to her collection, a blackberry bold and one of the wall mounted hand cranked phones from the late 1920’s.  She said that she’s thinking about displaying them side by side to emphasize the changes in technology between the two.
