That is certainly shaping up into a wonderful display!

"WOW" is the only word I can come up with. I knew you had an incredible collection, but it is even more impressive displayed like that!

Just beautiful.

This is an awesome display!

Do you have a way to scan some of the instruction cards? We have a 1C1 at the Telephone Museum in Maine that is connected to a #3 crossbar in post-pay mode but it has the post-pay instruction cards. It would be cool to reproduce a pre-pay instruction card set to have it be "correct"...

Hi, "new guy" here...

Just saw this thread for the 1st time today. After spending this week beaming because I just acquired my 1st pay phone I am floored at your considerable collection!

No wonder I don't find many old pay phones out in "the wild"....

You have them all!

Nice job of creating this huge phone booth display!

Jim - Your display is really looking great.  I really like that the collection is all "as removed from service" - there is a huge amount of history there.  Perhaps your building will someday become the "National Payphone Archive", a true resource.  No rattlecan repaints or hopper ringers here......
