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).
