Vintage phone collector Hassan al-Tourky may be one of the few people in the modern age of microchips and video calls, not walking around with a mobile phone in his pocket. In the busy Attaba market in downtown Cairo, al-Tourky's collection includes a 1933 piece used by Egypt's late King Farouq with his image on it, and others once owned by Charlie Chaplin, Thomas Hudson and Egyptian and foreign celebrities.
