And this one is from their general site, from the 1930s







I wonder how many ppl developed asbestosis/mesotheliomas from using or making these things?

Am I the only one bothered by the floating nurse in the picture? Her body ends at the waist! Even if she hears the patient ring a bell, how will she answer it? Guess she just works that switchboard.

Gee, it must have been a huge adjustment for nurses to go from large wards where they could see all their patients to semi-privates.

As you can tell by my Avatar, I've read the Cherry Ames books and there is reference to electronic call bells/lights even in the second book so they must have been around by WW2.

And here I always thought that the call bell was invented by a man with the sniffles.

I thought that avatar looked familiar. I read most of those books, too.

There are days when I could just strangle the man who invented the call light. But at the same time, Thank God for it. It was a great invention

Now that was funny but it's true not a good picture there.
