    This Looks like a PBX board from the 1940s. It looks like Western Electric too.

    This looks like the type of switchboard used in small motels in the 50's & 60's

    The tag says Bell System, looks to be a Western Electric 555 switchboard manufactured from the 1950/1970's. It could also be a Telephone Answering Service (TAS) board a modified 555 switchboard.

    This looks like a possible small common battery switchboard once used on a manual exchange. It could be modified for magneto service, like a PBX at a summer camp.
