Hi Guys,
 I've been collecting since late 2012 when I was forced to retire due to disability. First wood, then candlesticks and now porcelain for the last year. I did fall off the wagon recently and purchased a 1919 fire telegraph call box. Hmm no payphones!
Regards,
Bob Farber

Bob,

What kind of plants do you suppose they grew in that department?? (Trying to come up with a good telephone/botanical pun, but having no luck!)...

Oh, wait...

Maybe that is where they researched leaf switches...maybe trunk lines...or branch circuits!

Very nice collection!  Well done!

Nick

Thanks Doug. If you recognize the connections public telephone sign, it is because it is the one I got from you.

I did recognize it. Space limitations was the only reason it left  :'( .....happily it went to a good Home. How about some pictures of your entire collection? You have some great stuff....Doug
