Step Back In Time When You Visit This One Of A Kind Museum In Albuquerque, New Mexico
Did you know that just over a century ago, American homes just started gaining access to one of the latest pieces of modern technology? Back in the 1920s, homes were being outfitted with wiring for the telephone, an intriguing hunk of metal and wire that quickly became one of the most important gadgets of the American household. It’s easy to take our thin, powerful, and extremely mobile phones for granted these days, but there are some places where you can see how this piece of technology grew over the centuries.
