    Love it, love it. Can you poste a better pic of the front so I can see if it is in as good a condition as I think?

    It is in very nice condition, I just added more photos, but unfortunately they are sideways. (I am new at this forum)

    Looks to be in beautiful condition. I've always loved these old phones but just could never justify diversifying more. You have nice piece & we have people in CW who will come along to help you. Wish it were mine!

    Alfred Stromberg and Androv Carlson went in partnership in 1894. They formed the Stromberg-Carlson Telephone Manufacturing Co in Chicago. In 1903 the company moved to Rochester, NY. your wall telephone was manufactured around 1918

    Didn't I tell you so? These are very popular with me and many others on CW. Just don't see many in the islands, probably because of hurricanes.

    Thank you Ttomtucker and yes Blunderbuss2 you are right!
