Time capsules on the walls

Our students were fascinated by the old intercom system in St Ambrose rectory.  We're sure it was state of the art when the house was built.

But maybe even more curious are the names still in the directory.  We're not sure of what ever became of Fr. Dragastin, Fr. Rosemeyer or Fr. Hazard (hopefully they are in their heavenly reward) but they were the last to receive calls on this intercom.  Once the technology was no longer useful it was abandoned with so little thought that no one even bothered to remove their names from the little windows.  Today we have junk drawers were old cell phone collect for years after they received their last call.  Some things never change.
