Man, you surely do have an amazing question. Though, I would be worried all that natural light would discolor the phone, if it was mine, I would have the blinds drawn all the time.

That is a truly extraordinary and most beautiful collection. Definitely an inspiration...

The only drawback is that the grand total REN must be written in scientific notation!

Whenever I look at Doug's collection, I try and imagine all of those phones ringing at once. What a sound that would be!

Doug,
What an absolutely wonderful collection. I always felt a collection on display should be well organized, but Now I realize that is NOT the best way to display a collection. My collection, you can look at it, and the next time pretty much know what to expect. Your display, Like Dennis mentioned, you find new things every time you look. Never gets boring. I did notice that you have a couple Lanterns hanging over the window, I have those exact same two Lanterns The blue Dietz with Red Glass, and The Red with Red Glass.

The new carpeting is in!! The new shelves are up and the Phone Room is ready for "today." After 8 Hours I am beat. Just had a real hot shower and a good stiff drink. I am very happy with the end result (not finished). This was Five 8+ hour days to accomplish this. ....Kiddead

Looks remarkable, Doug!

     I'm glad you were able to weather the whole ordeal. After all those hours of work, and stress over this, I'd feel free to another stiff drink, were I you! ;)

     I'd love to see some pics of your growing collection of manual phones, someday when you have some time. I have a goodly number of them, myself, and fancy them a great deal. 8)

Best regards!
