I think that I may have a WESTERN ELECTRIC TYPE 294 FIDDLEBACK telephone. Does anyone know where can I find a picture of one?

Admin reply: There is currently a photo of this compact fiddleback as the featured phone on http://www.antiquetelephonehistory.com/ ;)

I used to live in Great Bend Kansas and was an early member of the Telephone Artifacts Association. I was a member in good standing no. 16 in 1978. (Not sure when I joined)I have several old phones in my home and I collect the old telphone line glass insulators.
I don't know when your Antique Telephone Collectors Association was started but am sure our old Telephone Artifacts Association must have been a part of the new association.

I am retiring from 40 + years in teh telcom industry. I have a large assortment of documentation, starting from 1939 editions of AT&T training manuals, thru instaqllation and repair manuals from teh 80's and 90's. Also a number of commercially published telephone history books. I also have a small amount of old equipment (phones, * * * ins, etc.) Is anyone in this organiztion interested in any of this stuff? Especially if they ar near to Portland? I could try putting it on eBay or some such, but it would take forever to post, and shipping would be a killer. I'd like to see this stuff go somewhere it was appreciated, even if I don't get top dollar.

I am restoring an old phone booth from the 30's. My brother and I saved it from a dumpster during a bank remodeling job in Chicago back in the 70's. Original everything. The only thing I can't find is the light fixture that hung over the shelf on the outside. It looks like a tapers mud pan hung upside down with a pull chain light inside and the little Bell Systems bell stamped on the outside Any help would really be appreciated.

I bought an old wall telephone by impulse today. The front plate says Wesco Supply Co St Louis, the transmitter is an "Am Tel & Tel Co" with a 1913 patent number, and the receiver is a Stromberg-Carlson Mfg Co E-88. It has a few dings, the front panel closure latch on the box is missing and it's secured with a non-original wood screw. Everything inside looks relatively complete and all four hinges are solid. Doesn't look like the original transmitter. Do you have anyone interested in helping me find out more about this? Documentation, schematic, etc would be useful. The mag looks good and the battery wires are ok. Is this collectible or have I just bought a $75 project to hang on my wall? Thanks. Keith, AF6NE (oh yeah, I got this impulse disease because I'm a ham operator).
