Yeah – who said the Hammond wasn’t an expert demonstration in miniaturisation :-)

If we're playing this game, the basic electrical standard for landline
telephone service dates from the 1870s.  Pulse dialling is from the 1890s
and I think many networks can still accept the pulse dialling signals of
that era, even if the numbering schemes have changed and DTMF introduced
in the 1960s is now preferred.  I still use a DTMF phone plugged into a
cable modem; the cable modem does not do a good job of following the
standard (insufficient ring voltage - I had to build a booster) but my
phone, manufactured in the 2010s, would've worked on at least a 1970s-era
North American network, and except for dialling might have worked on at
least some 1890s-era networks.

You should try to order some Telharmonium service for maximum enjoyment! Wonderful system also from the 1890s. A pity it closed down... or did it? (-:
