Foreign delegation at The Museum of Telephone History
A tour in English was organized especially for their visit. As there were only 3 tourists, some devices (mostly manufactured in Sweden) were taken from their displays to let the visitor inspect them more closely. Mister Fassberg (working in telecommunications in Sweden) was particularly interested in devices manufactured in his homeland. He told museum staff how he was personally acquainted with the legendary Ericophone creator (there is even a Russian ‘Ericophone’ fan club). The Swedes call this very popular 80s model the ‘Cobra’ as the casing of this apparatus reminds people of the cobra.
