Unbelievable! I would have thought you needed a concrete and steel building for all of those phones! It's been decades since I have even seen a 3 slot payphone and over 40 years since I saw one used. If it was me I would set up a few channel banks and connect to an Asterisk server so some of them can get dial tone. I had also set up a controller to work with Western Electric single slot phones which would recognize the coin tones based on some code I got from the internet.

Hard to beat that collection of AE's in my mind. But, I might be a little biased!

Nice that AE made them available in every colour that AE made the other phones of that era available in.

Fantastic Display!
