    Showing inside of box in reference to question I have about hanging this phone. Back pretty beat up and very unattractive. I wonder if it’s original. @TallCakes

      Alfred Stromberg & Androv Carlson when into partnership in 1894. The company name was Stromberg-Carlson Telephone Manufacturing Co. of Chicago. Your phone was mfg some time around 1902, because the company moved to Rochester, NY
      in 1903. Your phone has the early magneto and lighting arrester. I have hung these
      telephones with two inch deck screws into dry wall. some use molly bolts?

      What is a lightening arrestor? Obviously it must have something to with lightning and arrestor sounds like it must be something to protect against lightening. Where is it and how did it work? I’m guessing the magnetos are the red magnets. I want to ask how that worked but rather than you have to quote a book, is there a link you know of that breaks it all down to How old Stromberg Carlson Phones Work for Dummies?

      @ttomtucker. Forget my questions about the lightening arrestor. Another collector sent me a few links and in one it was an explanation of what it was. Thanks
