When I dropped in to Circa Vintage Clothing recently and met owner Nicole, I also met her friend John. He showed us his cordless bluetooth mobile phone handset, which he allowed me to photograph. He got a bakelite 1930s phone handset from a second hand shop and installed a bluetooth headset in it, allowing him to take calls on this retro handset. It’s fabulous and I predict it will be the next big thing. Miniaturisation is good in a way, but many contemporary devices have no appealing aesthetic properties. This is Gattaca, The Matrix and Fitzroy all mixed in together.
