Poza Zilei: Atentie – Dusmanul Asculta

This is the picture of the WW-2 era field phone that I mentioned in this article. This field phone was inside the older telecabina in Busteni and still works (powered by a hand crank). It’s used by the lift attendant to communicate with the base stations.
I tried to take several photos to get a clearer picture of the instructions but this one was the best I could do with my crappy phone. The legend says “Warning – The Enemy Is Listening” and proceeds to instruct the user to be sure to hang up the phone when you’re finished talking on the phone, and of course to be careful what you say as the enemy is listening.

Nice piece of living history, especially as it was the only Romanian equipment on an entirely Italian-made (and labeled) cable car lift.
