There aren't many words to describe that collection!  Amazing!

That first photo would make a great jig-saw puzzle.  Real tiny puzzle pieces.  But then again, I guess they all would. 

I'd be like a kid in a candy store looking at all those in person.  Where would one begin?  Among other phones, I really like your red, pink and blue Continentals.

Wow.  Thanks for posting those!

My name is Doug Rose and I am a new member of your forum, but not a new collector. ......Doug   aka "Kidphone"
Hi Doug,
I am glad you found the forum, It is a lot funner than the list servers have been (lately).
You have a great collection.
Your collection is a prime example of what happens once the telephone collecting infection takes hold.

I have been fortunate enough that I have been only mildly infected.

WOW KID phone says it all....
I'm partial to 302's, boy you took the wind out of my sails with your 302 collection.
I would like to say I hope my collection looks like yours in 30 years, It might, I'll only be 90.

Wow, that is one extensive collection!  It's really something to give us newbies hope.  Something to aspire to.

What a great collection!
And the first picture included this:

The only I recognized as Norwegian. Not the nicest, but ....one of those from Norway.
Strange but recognizing something familiar gives a special feeling.

Most impressed of the payphones.

Kidphone,

A BIG Welcome to a BIG, BIG, BIG, phone collector. Your phone room is like a phone wonderland. Iím one of the newest members here. The folks (very knowledgeable) here helped me get my black WE 302 up and going. I noticed you have what looks like a gray Connecticut to the left of the TV. I was given one a few weeks ago. Yours is the third one Iíve ever seen. Your collection is totally awesome.

It is certainly a great feeling to see the enthusiasm that all of you have for Telephones. In the other clubs that I am in, vintage telephones seem to have taken a back seat , which is why I reached out to you. I enjoy this hobby very much. There is still no better feeling than getting a beat up piece of history and restoring it to its past glory. When I give one for a gift, people are amazed that it still works! And that RING!!   ....thanks again.....Kidphone

Geepers, what an amazing collection!  I see you have a clear 302, what's the story on that?  And welcome to the forum.
