I recently obtained my great grandfather's old telephone. It's made by Chicago Telephone Supply. It's a wooden wall mounted phone that is about 3 feet long. I remember back in the late '60s when my dad actually got it to work. Since then, it has sat in a barn. The wood is in nice shape with a couple of dings. It looks like it may have been dropped. The hinges on the upper area door are broken. All of the chrome inside is still shiny. All of the wires on the outside are broken and or missing. I'd like to restore it to original condition and perhaps hook it up with another phone on our property. Looking for recommendations..maybe books about how these phones worked. R/John

older brother had a very good friend who worked for the phone company back in the 50's. most all stuff lost over the years but some payphone stuff. most are in parts but this one is almost complete. no earpiece. talking piece is on the front.must be an old one because the tag on the top says number 50. not sure if to try to sell on craigs or on to this club. suggestion.

I have an old oak wall phone which I believe is pictured in the Vintage Ads and Articles, page 6, bottom left. A brass plaque on the top box says "Western Telephone Construction Company, Chicago, Ills."
I think it's time to sell this. Is anyone interested? Does anyone have any information on this?
Please e-mail me.
Thanks,
Dianne Gaffney
