I grew up with a local battery system that was not replaced until some time in the middle fifties. In 1950 I went to the Los Angeles area and worked for Ma Bell for 34 years in the "complex" in down town LA. We handled Long distance, Private lines, Television, Radio networks, And miscelanious other stuff like telegraph which phased out about the time I started.

Im a computer network analyst with interest in an old Northern Telcom - equipment. With no dial component its a box with a wired ear piece and a fixed mouth piece to speak into. I was told by my father, ( a retired 2way radio Ontario Hydro telecom Technician ) its from a party line phone system , used by an operator.
I could match it to a picture if I saw it again.
Thx John.

We love your collection, especially the Charles Williams phones. He was married to my great-grandmother's sister. My grandmother, Ella Tuttle, and great-grandmother, Clara A. Cole lived with Mr. and Mrs. Charles Williams while she was attending college at Wellseley College @1900. The first phone was connected from his Court Street business to the E. E. Cole home in Somerville, Mass. They paid the neighbors to hand the phone line on their homes. Also, do you know who the First phone customers were? Do you show your collection to the public? Thank you so much for your collection. Renee Malloy, JD

I was working in the Department of Telecommunications India since 1974. It is really exciting to go through and experience the old methods of Telecommunications . Really a great work and I appreciate all behind this site.
