Best Phone Access Panel Ever
Tribune Tower is a Chicago landmark built in the 20's. It's a lovely building with lots of cool treasures hidden within. Check out this phone access panel (I think) on the bottom floor. My guess is that this is original to the building, but it's not a standard part that you'd order out of a catalog. Look how roughly hewn the outline of the phone is, or the quality of the scrollwork. All very handmade. Made by a local artist? Carved by a bored night watchman? Also you've got to love that the icon representing the phone is an old candlestick model. Wow.
