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

I used to sell fax machines when I lived in Tampa. In the late 1980s it was as easy to sell as crack.

And here's another little jewel for the younger crowd, it's called a dot matrix printer (everyone say Ooooooooo). You can still own one if you have a few hundred lying around...and some hearing protection.

I've got a working one of these in my garage.  I'll be happy to sell for a few hundred.

I keep one of these stored out in the garage - just in case.  Sure enough I had to use once in 2016 to send something that wouldn't be accepted any other way.

Ah... The Daewoo Leganza. You think you hate it now, wait 'til you drive it.

couple years ago, I had this high school kid working for me and behind him was a typewriter. I sat down and was typing an envelope and the kid said, "I was wondering what that thing was"

Had to fax something at work the other day for the first time.  Those things are weird.
