This is an old window decal used by The Bell Telephone Company of Missouri. These decals were lost for many decades and eventually found in between pages of an old book. I think there were four decals in total. This decal was probably posted on the front window of the telephone company where the bills were paid by subscribers. This item is estimated to be about 90 years old or older. This company was merged with Southwestern Bell around 1921.

    The Bell Telephone Company of Missouri operated in Missouri from 1880 to 1913 and then became Missouri & Kansas Telephone Co until 1917. From 1917 Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, Texas were combined to become. Southwestern Bell Telephone Co.
