I would guess it's probably the same reason so many WE 500's are in Black. Black was the standard color. The color phones were special order and more expensive to rent.

My 1989 Northern Telecom Symphony Engineering sample. This is a pale green colour with speckles that never made it to market.

I sold my walk up booth...

So that’s what that was. That always caught my eye in your photos, always liked it. Good display and practical as was useable too. Sorry to see it gone but my other little favourite display unit does look really nice in it’s place. Makes that corner of the room come together nicely.

Thanks Fab,

The booth and payphone went to another collector who is just starting his man cave. He also bought 4 other payphones from me.
These phones were all my doubles except the Red and Black one. They went to a good home.

1) Northern Electric Centurion
2) Automatic Electric Black and Red LPC 86 55
3) Northern Electric Black 233H
4) Northern Electric Beige 233QF
