I can't believe that thing survived this long! My grandparents had one years ago, but it was ripped out in the early 90s....does it still work?

No, it doesn't work, but it sure is cool. Entire house is kind of funky. It was built as a contemporary in the early 50's. I tried finding info on the web about it, but can't seem to find anything similar. I'll have to look at it closer tomorrow. The bathroom also had a medicine cabinet with slots to dispose of razor blades. When the carpenters opened the wall about a zillion blades fell out.:eek:

Still have that medicine cabinet in my half-bath...circa 1965.
