Unusual Galion
« on: September 17, 2008, 07:38:07 AM »
There's a very strange North Electric Galion on eBay, and I wondered if anyone knows about these. It's not the first one I've seen, so I know it's not someone's science project. (although it does have a certain Flash Gordon look to it)

Note:  Our Ivory AE contest phone is being auctioned by the same seller as this Galion!

I have no clue other than to say the toggle switch appears to be one of those spring loaded jobs....maybe an intercom phone.  Toggle one way for in-coming, toggle the other way for outgoing???  Just a guess.  Interesting looking phone though.  You mentioned Flash Gordon, my first thought was something out of the Twilight Zone.  :)

Love this phone!  Big goofy lights, a hand toggle, all it needs is a large lever on the side in chrome to finish off the Buck Rogers look.
