Hello everybody, I thought I would start a new project. In this world of fancy cell phones and what not, I thought it would be a fun project to take my old telephone and get it up and working again. It is a 1907 hand crank wall telephone. It has 3 terminals at the top, and when I connected a makeshift telephone wire to it, I got a dial tone! I could even receive calls, and when I turned the crank, the rotary dial phone on the other side of my house would ring! The second image is of the inner workings of the phone, and the third image is of the stamps and tags inside the cabinet of the telephone. I found this telephone at a thrift store here in the Piedmont of North Carolina. Happy Thanksgiving to all!
