Wow, it makes me dizzy, there is so much to look at. The room looks amazing, you could open it as a telephone Museum.  Who dose the dusting???

Hey Scot....the dusting is me. Janet vacuums one a week. I dust it in poos. I use a big feather with a little pledge on it. It works well, but is just a surface clean. I do a section every few months where I take every phone and wipe it with a clean cloth. It is labor intensive and takes a lot of time, but well worth it to me.....Doug

You do have an outstanding collection Doug. But we don't see all the work that you put into all those phones. It takes a lot of work to restore all those phones.

Amazing as always Doug! I totally understand why your carpet layer quit and now works free of charge for the “Rid the World of Old Telephones” Scrap Metal Association.

Doug - Always appreciate seeing the updates!  Nice variety, arrangement, and cleanliness!!  Two items:

1) I see your new rose manual 302, taking the place of a red manual 302, leading me to guess the red one was painted.  True?

2) I can’t find your stock exchange turret phone....  Is it there somewhere?
