      One MORE splendid example of an antique telephone today!! (I gotta get me one of my own one of these days, I guess...?? <lol>)

      'Stuff, don't forget that turning the generator crank wasn't ever meant to make the bells on that phone itself ring, just to notify the "operator" in the "central office" that you were on your end waiting to be connected to somebody else -- then they'd send the signal from there to somebody else's phone to ring the bells.

      It isn't difficult to 'rig' the wiring therein to now make the bells ring when the crank is turned...after all these old wood box phones are *way* too old/incompatible with anybody's modern day "landline" to actually be used anymore, at least without much more severe internal 'alteration'... ;-) :-) :-)

      Neat feature with the folding table.
