Comments: I'm writing a novel about Theodore Roosevelt and I have him talking on a telephone in New York in 1895. Does anyone know what kind of phone might that be, what does it look like,and how does it operate.

Comments: My wife was thrift shopping, and at garage sales the other day and found a beautiful oak phone in almost mint condition. The reciever part looks brass and has Patented in USA November 1910 stamped on it. there is a box just below with a slot for 5 cents, 10 cents and 25 cents. The placard just above that says, "Call central office as usual, do not deposit money until told by operator" The front opens and there is a dial inside. This phone is so neat! Can anyone tell me more about it?
