Bell Telephone Company Switchboard?
« on: March 17, 2019, 01:16:01 PM »
Dial wrong, and I have never seen one with this type of huge Bell Telephone Company writing on the top.

Can anyone give any info about this?

Dial does not appear to be a WE dial.Equiptment would have normally have the Western Electric name somewhere instead of Bell system .

I am going to take a wild guess here that somebody added the lettering for a movie set. That was my first reaction when I saw it.
