Thank you! I was trying to bring my phone collection out of the work area into my living area and make it functional. It's working out nicely! Dusting it is another matter...Ha!

My latest two additions have been mated and added to the display wall. The 1212 Fatboy and 1197-a both Stromberg Carlson, share a extension position in the 308 PBX. The 1197-a was fitted with a 302 base subset until I purchase a proper SC subset. To make the subset acceptable for display i outfitted it with a wood box I bought from Hobby Lobby, configured and stained. It can be seen behind the 1197. I see this as a Fatboy a main house phone and the 1197-a as a proper extension. Probably used that way in many households in the 30's.

Hey Benny,
I found you a pin-up for your phone room.
