Interesting Dial Centers from Texas
« on: December 28, 2014, 05:43:47 PM »
I just received these off of eBay, they are two dial centers sized to fit WE phones.  One is a standard dial center insert and one is a cap that fits over the dial card holder.  Both advertise pharmacies in the Houston area.

Very unusual. Most of the over the dial card holder ads do not have numbers on the perimeter and have a center cut-out so you can see the telephone number.

Maybe once they do something with the last batch of photos I sent them.
