Phone of the Day: Nortel/Aastra M9417CW Analog Telephone at Roots Clothing Shop in Banff, Alberta

I spotted this two line analog set on the counter of the iconic Canadian retailer Roots.

Although this phone looks like a digital or IP set, it’s actually an analog set that runs off typical analog phone lines from the phone company, or on a PBXs analog line.

This set is the second generation telephone set, released in the late 1990s to function with Caller Id Call Waiting hence the CW.
