My Newest Treasures

 Hard to say what is my fave of my new treasures on this post.
Victorian Door Bell....
 cool old photo album,
more about that later..
The small books are called "Penny Books".
(at least that is what the lady I bought them from said).
I got 33 of them...all green.
And in the back is my second perpetual calendar.
 and this is totally cool.
I'm new at this antiquing thing,
but I have not seen one of these before.
It is an address book!!
Not sure what is missing at top, but
this is how it works...
 You 'dial' to the initial you want,
and then push the little stopper thingy to the left,
then the book opens up to the page you wanted!
woo hoo..
but, below is the most cool......
 This phone from 1940.

 Missing the little mouthpiece thingy, but the
cool green color makes up for it.
What do you think?? a keeper??
Thanks for coming by.
