Day 131 of 365: How may I direct your call?

An antique operator's desk that is in the lobby of the Francis Marion Hotel in Marion. It's not the picture I had in mind, but I was trying to hurry while checking out at the same time. When I see the desk however, it makes me think of the Grand Hotel and the movie Somewhere in Time where Christopher Reeve goes back in time to the 1920s! There's also an antique key/letter box behind the check-in counter. I'll have to get that one next visit.

Haha! Actually it was being used as a table for advertisements! I had to clear them off for the photo. I'll be sure to mention the dust next time!
