I just had a thought...

How much do you think those walls weigh right now? :o

Fantastic collection, Doug! I wish we had a 360į view of the room. I still get confused about what part of the room is what.

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 canít find your stock exchange turret phone....  Is it there somewhere?
Paul.  I still have the turret phone, next to the VO mirror on right. The red Manual  was painted and I still have it....Doug

Love the pictures - it's giving me some ideas for how to display my phone "subcollections": Princesses in Color, Trimlines in Color, 564/565s in Color, and the "White Collection" - about 50 different models, all in white (or a could of cases antique white).  I'm also working on a wall display for 554/1554/2554s in color to hang on a wall

Ideally, I'd like to hook up some of the subcollections with a Panasonic 624 or two...

Christian.....when we redid the house in 2001 this room was constructed to display telephones.  The original shelves were built by a carpenter. Extra beams in the wall to distribute the weight.  I donít think anyone in 2001 thought it would look like it does now....including me!  8)
