Perhaps you've seen those articles that picture some 19th century gismo, doodad or whatchamacallit and ask you to identify it. Typically, it's an apple corer, a meat grinder, a butter churn or possibly all three. Unless you're over ninety, however, you'd seldom have a clue. https://medium.com/muddyum/in-praise-of-rotary-phones-4d636a14cb8e
