    1898 New England Tel & Tel Telephone Guide

    I picked up ($10.49 on eBay) this New England Telephone & Telegraph Co. guide dated 1898. It consists of several pages of promotional materials with graphics and a list of the different localities in New England that had telephone service, many of which were not served by NET&T.

      sargeguy, I was amused by photo 2 showing the "wrong" and right" way to use the telephone. It seems the focus was on ergonomics and safety but I'm not sure either is the solution to both.

      You have a great collection of telephone ephemera.
