Telegrapher’s Perch

This is a period reproduction of a railroad station from 1910 in the San Bernardino Railroad & History Museum.  In so far as it being a historically accurate representation the museum might want to consider re-designating it as a railroad station circa 1920, as the rotary telephone was not invented until 1919.  I do appreciate some of the details, such as the spittoon, the telegraph key (visible in a high resolution view) to the left of the typewriter, and the telegraph receiver above and to the left of the telegraph key.
