I started my work at Bell Telephone Co. of Canada in Mid 50' at the Telegraph Test Board. The board was a No. 9 TLGH from Western Electric.We still had a few old TLGH Morse lines but mainly 40B carrier system and 40c carrier systems. Plus old 12A1 TLGH repeaters. We then went to 43A1 carrier systems Most of the Equip was Western Electric. We now were using the No2 TLGH TEST Board from western Electric.

I also worked installing one of the 1st data systems from Europe to Canada and USA. We used Troposphere Scatter radio systems for this.

I also worked 4A Xbar and also ended up in the Data department were I ended up before retiring.

So I went from Morse lines to Data service via satellite and coax.

I have just found an old wooden, grain-pained with marquetry inlay, French phone, and I am turning my attention to collecting antique telephones!

I retired in 1991 and was given Stromberg Carlson telephone with a crank on the side. I looked for a model number but only found Capslon with Serial 200595. Thinking about donating to local museum.

I own a Kellogg wooden crank Phone acquired from my grandfathers farm in Idaho and an Army WWI field phone, two German field phones (WWII) and a 415H wall ringer box and a Kellogg desk phone ca 1930 attached to the ringer box. The ringer box phone is weak for sound.

I found a candlestick phone in my mothers attic. trying to find out who made it I think it's a Stromberg and Carlson. At the stem of the base which by the way looks like bakerlite On the ring is stamped patd. sept 12 1905. There is a bakerlite mouth piece, behind that the head looks like it's nickel plated. front and back, the Back has a ball which you can use to adjust head piece. on the front of mouth piece it's stamped 1176521C has receiver wire is fraid and cut from where it must of connected to a wall box. phone looks to be all original. Also looks to have original felt at bottom.

I have come across the oddest, coolest payphone I have ever seen. It is supposedly a prototype from the 1950's and reeks of MCM design. The story is it is one of two (makes it more of a conceptual model rather than a prototype), but I can't confirm that either. The designer is said to be E.M. Edwards. If anyone knows where I should be posting this discussion and photos of it, please let me know.
