Comments: My wife and I are flea market junkies as well as a regular vendor at our local one. We came across a Elliott Phone Co, Indianapolis, In wall phone with what looks to be an extra remote ringer box. Any light you could shed on this for me would be greatly appreciated. My wife wants to keep it to go with her 3Hoosier Cabinet set. If I keep it, how far should I go refinishing it. I restore fire/water damaged antique furniture, and have established a great reputation in our area. So it wouldn"t be a borderline restoration. Thank You in adavance. Woody.

Comments: AWESOME site. Looking forward to browsing the many helpful topics and photos. I started working for C&P Of Virginia in 1969 and worked as a PBX installer. Then moved to California and worked for PT&T in Pasadena as a station installer. Then moved to San Diego and finished my career with PacBell. I was a station installer, did prewire, station and coin repair then testboard. I retired with 33 years service. Right after I retired I started working for Golden Telecom in San Marcos where I am still employed after 13 years.

Comments: 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.
