The Folly Pie in Napton has a new owner since I went in last. I don’t remember all the Bric-a-Brac there. A quantity of hats adorn all the ‘exhibits’ which include a windup grammarphone with a wonderful brass sound horn. Unfortunately the speed control is iffy and the landlord is looking for someone who has knowledge of the mechanics of these machines.

On the bar sits this beauty. I don’t know if it is an original or repro but it does work. Chico Marks used to call it a statue as in ‘is dat you’.

Nice phone, and I guess it would work as it's not 'tmobile :)

Talking of which... have you got your issues with their lack of service sorted out yet?
