Hand cleaning a section of the phone room and this just caught my eye. Just in wonderful condition. Red is a reflection of my red sweatshirt....Doug

That is an interesting sign. Cool subject matter and unusual construction. I don't know If I have seen an illuminated telephone with a wood case. Bell System on top of the sign seems unusual as well.
Pretty cool sign

I don't think this is a lighted sign?

I wonder if there is anything written on the wood behind the sign.

Very nice piece Doug.
