Retro 1950s Telephone: Map EditionInventions_PhoneMap_Blue_12.5x12.5 $44
“Mr Watson, come here, I want you.” When Brantford, Ontario inventor Alexander Graham Bell spoke those famous words into his experimental telephone on March 10, 1876, it signified the beginning of a worldwide communication revolution. Few inventions since have had the same impact on the way we live our lives today.
Over the decades, telephones have been made into many shapes from the classic wooden wall-mounted works of art to wacky cartoon characters, to the smartphone pocket wonders that control our lives today. I could have picked any version for our 'Telephone' art print but this red retro beauty from the 1950s was my choice because I've always been inspired by mid-century industrial design. Classic design will never go out of style and collectors of quirky Canadian art and antique maps are sure to want this on their walls.
