730A Interpone speaker on ebay
« on: February 20, 2021, 10:18:02 PM »
Neat 730A Interphone speaker on eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/NOS-Vintage-Western-Electric-Bell-System-White-730A-Interphone-Speaker-Receiver/284188999270

Curious who gets it and what kind of interphone system they have.

( I am posting all future  western electric interphone stuff under this 'key systems category' because they don't seem meet the standard for the Intercom & Interphone Systems Board category and they used key system relays, and are not "designed as intercoms ONLY", correct me if I am wrong)

Cheers

=====

NOS Vintage Western Electric Bell System White 730A 730A58 Interphone Speaker Receiver.
Dated 9-74.
New in box. Never Used.

I've never seen one in person in use.
I wasn't aware they were so popular in areas.
Very cool idea though.

Saw one installed in a house during an estate sale here in New Orleans a few years ago.  Someone else got it most of it, it was de-installed when I checked back later.  I did end up with the front door speaker, plastic is a bit sun damaged however.

There was one in a house we moved to when I was a kid, it never worked so i tinkered with it all the time.
It was a blast, probably one of the things that lead me to a career as an electrician.
