Talk about a blast from the past. I knew what it was. I remembered them from way back. Had to check to see the exact timeframe. 1985. Same year I arrived in the U.S. for ‘this stint’ — having previously come for one year in 1967.

Doctors and EMTs used them to send TEXTs! Kid you not. Early e-mail.

This TTY terminal probably still works if you knew the phone number of a computer that will support TTY communication.

Wow.

34-years old — or in that timeframe.

Wanted to share with you all.

Enjoy.
