This is the fax machine (aka "Way Back" Machine) ... it is a communication device that is still used by High Schools and Colleges.

Actually used one similar last night that's been sitting on a desk upstairs for years ..... amazed when it still worked.

Yes it does, the type of machine ET pictured is an antique, replaced many moons ago by newer technology.

We have one about a "major bank from spain, with significant US presence" inquiring about our "potential borrowing needs."  $3 Million to $100 million in debt capital.
