Which is your favorite phone in this ad? Is it the old-timey phone of the past or the phone of the future? First, I'm wondering why hipsters haven't picked up on the old-timey for their artisan coffee shops. Meanwhile, the phone of the future is...blowing my mind! In 1959, why did they think this would be so futuristic? Was a fatter phone the thing of Ray Bradbury sci-fi novels? And how far ahead were they thinking in the future - was it like 4 months?

Ironically, 1959 was the same year the first car phone was invented. The General Post Office radio telephone service for cars launched in South Lancashire, England.
