    Here are 2 really nice and original Bell System and Local and Long Distance Lamp Shades. These shades and others like them used to hang in bus depots, train stations and Telephone Central Offices to let the public know where they could make calls from that were connected to the Bell System, or make Local and Long Distance phone calls.

      Connie, you have to be careful when buying the Long Distance shade they have been reproduced and are still sold around $350.00, sometime at $299.00.
