Today's Treasures.
« on: November 14, 2017, 04:12:33 PM »
I took a longer drive today, outside my usual run and found a few treasures.
I was told that the sign came out of a collection where the owner had passed away.
Can anyone translate the tag on the handset and identify it?

I was going to say “okay, where is it” but eventually I found it. Where’s Waldo!

Your garage looks great! (the sign is cool too)   I will admit to being a bit envious of the space you have there.  Amazing that you can have two phone booths, plus lots of other stuff and still park cars in there!   :)

Thanks Paul,

It is a 24' X 30' garage that I build in 2008. The city allowed me 1000 sq. ft. to build a 24' X 42' garage. Like a fool I chose to only to make it 720 sq. ft. Not thinking about the future. Now I'm kicking myself in the butt. Who would have thought that one person could collect so many phones and phone related items. That extra space would have made a great phone display area.
