Quite the fleet of "Mickey Mouse Phones" you have there WesternElectricBen! :)

Terry

Yes, Nick!

     Is the center one, or the right one the eldest? I would guess RH side one. Just trying to develop some new wrinkles in the ol' brain, so thanks!!

Best regards!
I would guess actually the center one is the oldest. This is the one I have in the museum. But I can't swear as to which is the oldest. I am just going by the dial. I stand to be corrected.

I got this a few years back to amuse the kids that see the museum, and it certainly has!

pictured below is not really a workshop but it is in my telephone room and is where all my refurbs and any other phone work takes place also in the closet is my phone parts box and the 3rd photo is some extra casings. the room is only a mess like this (1st photo) when a refurb is going on and in the 1st photo is the current refurb of my 302. ;)

On vacation what do you do? Janet says we clean your workshop! Fun  ;D  fun  :'( fun  :o. In all fairness. I could not move or find anything. Lot of swearing, little work done. Work space no bigger than a 302.  Six hours and I can find my stuff again. Threw out a lot of sh*t, but more will be coming back in. Take a look, its neat..................until tomorrow    ??? ....Doug

Dug, you know those white shelfs with the racks. If you wanted to store more phones I would buy more shelfs and lower the existing shelfs then you don't have lots of extra air space where phones could be stored.
