Old Phone Equipment

Do you ever think about the old phone equipment our mothers, fathers and grandparents used during their day? 

To the right is a wall phone used in early days of telephone use.
They were crude compared to what we use today.  But I know they were happy to have this one
since not many families did own one.

In the 1920's the phone below on the left was standard equipment.  Of course then there was an operator who would answer soon after you picked up the receiver and ask you who you wanted her to connect you with.

Next came the bakelite phones of the 1940's

Then the  princess phones of the 1950's-60's:

All the above phones are being sold here in the store.
