New England Telephone Wooden Service Crate

I saw this on CL yesterday and emailed the seller, he did not answer me.

Jan and I went to a yard sale in Natick this morning and there is was.

"I have someone coming tomorrow to pick it up for $85, BUT you can have it for $25." Okay...... I was going to offer more than that, so we agreed on $20. I don't know what I am going to do with it, but it sure is cool....Doug

I don't know what I am going to do with it.

It's obvious. Do what it says. return it to NET&T.

;D

Maybe you could fill it with odds and ends Bell System tools and parts. It could clear up some space around your 'dungeon' and make a cool display piece in your phone room!

That's pretty strange how it was built in Watertown of my State, but built for NET&T in Watertown of Doug's State!

Standing on it's end it would make a real nice phone, or tool display platform.

I would use it to pack my OMS phone projects in (Oh Maybe Someday).
