To my fellow Downton Abbey enthusiasts, the above photos represent the arrival and installation of telephone service in 1914. Classic, iconic versions of the telephone that blended perfectly with the accurately dated details of the elaborate sets and costumes.
Now, take a little peek at the adorably cheeky photos below; Downton's actors caught candidly on their 21st century iPhones in between filming. It seems so unfitting, so out of place, and possibly gives us a glimpse at what our modern technologies would have looked like had they existed in that time.
How strangely captivating and enchanting! Hope you have a lovely weekend my friends :)
