All about vintage telephones up to 1989. Advertisements, humor, history, collections, equipment, restoration/repair, technical questions, resources or just plain memories, it's all here. While emphasis is placed on American telephones, vintage telephones from around the world are also most welcomed.

Those commemorative Olympics phones are downright fugly, but the handsets on them remind me of Alexis Carrington-Colby-Dexter removing an earring prior to taking a call.

 

The see-through phone in the 114 million ad is, I think, the only 2500 model I've ever seen without a modular mounting cord.

OK, that blue "Design Line" phone is just hideous.

I remember one apartment we lived in SF in the 60's, had a little nook with a shelf in the entry hall, just big enough for a telephone. Of course, with a telephone outlet as well. There wasn't enough room for a chair, so I remember having to stand there to talk to my girlfriend while my nosy little sister stood there, staring and eavesdropping. Eventually in a fit of economy, Mom cancelled the phone service and I used the pay phone in a nearby gas station. Again, had to stand! Good times!

Prior to the interior demolition of my house, the entry hall had a recessed telephone shelf. It was just a homemade plywood box trimmed out with casing to match that on the doors and windows. It stuck into the coat closet about a foot. A phone jack was installed at the rear of the enclosure.

That part of the house is still the entry, but the walls have been moved a couple feet to have a larger living room (formerly the kitchen).

Gossip benches

I remember seeing these or some variant of same everywhere growing up. More common than telephone nooks, even in old houses. Most dated from the late '40s/50s era.

I remember seeing new gossip benches in the 1970's, early 80's. I guess cordless phones killed it off.

A little known fact......
After digging to a depth of 10 feet last year outside Buffalo, New York, scientists found traces of copper cable dating back 100 years.

They came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than 100 years ago
Not to be outdone by the New Yorkers, in the weeks that followed, a Los Angeles, California archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet somewhere just outside Oceanside. Shortly afterward, a story in the LA Times read, "California archaeologists, reporting a finding of 200 year old copper cable, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech communications network a hundred years earlier than the New Yorkers.
One week later, a local newspaper in Green Bay, Wisconsin reported, "After digging 30 feet deep in his pasture near the community of Sobieski, Wisconsin, Ole Olson, a heck of an engineer and a self-taught archaeologist, reported that he found absolutely nothing. Ole has therefore concluded that 300 years ago, Wisconsin had already gone wireless.
Just makes a person proud to be from Wisconsin!!!

Interesting long distance ad in Illinois...believe Bloomington and Peoria are still independent (Frontier; formerly GTE). I had a funny experience 25 yrs ago...my grandfather grew up in Grand Mound, IA near Clinton. I was working for US Cellular and was visiting Davenport, IA and took a little field trip up to Grand Mound to see it. There was a little phone company in Grand Mound next door to a small insurance company...the phone company was much more advanced than I'd thought (actually embarrassed myself with some of the questions I asked) and some family had been on the board of the mutual insurance company.

From 1936. We didn't get dial service home until 1966!
Always loved the sound the dial makes on those old phones.
