North produced some good-looking 'phones, didn't they?

Couple of the pics.  On a side note, it appears ebay has blocked right-click saving of pics.  Got around that by using the snipping tool on W7.

Lately I can't save pics using the Opera browser, does anyone here have a fix for this? With Firefox I have an add-on that lets me save pics, it is -  "ebayitemdescriptionsaveenlargedp" 1.6.2.
Try it, you might like it. If anyone knows of an add-on for Opera please let me know. I even went back to an old version hoping that would do the trick but no luck. I have searched for the answer but no luck there either.

Ebay pics are of a North Electric (Galion) phone with a WE dial.
Phone from New England is a Northern Electric (Canadian) phone.
