Title: Identify 3 Trunk 7 Extension Switchboard
Post by: zapper on July 13, 2021, 05:49:43 PM
Been purchasing stuff from the daughter of N.Y. Tel Employee.  She sent a picture of the switchboard her Dad brought home many years ago.
Looking for Model info and time frame it was is use.
My concern is the fuzz on it.  She also sent a picture of a 1960 Smith Corona Typewriter with the same fuzz also on the keys. It may be mold!!
She will LMK Wednesday if I can come over and look at them

Thanks

My guess is that it is  dryer lint.
My dryer vents into the garage and makes a mess with lint.

Just a guess,
