      Do you collect or know about old phones? If so I will send you a picture of mine. It's an old dial type desk style phone, black in color and has a button on the side which I assume is to 'ring' the secretary! It weighs quite a bit (compared to todays stuff) and it still works too

      Denise, Telephone booths can run any where from $200.00 to 1500.00. I have one that cost me 200.00 and it was manufactured in the 1950's by Western Electric. A photo of my booth is on my show and tell. A photo of your dad's booth would help.

      I recently acquired a Gray/Western Electric 3-coin pay syation #197G 55. The phone is mounted to a beautiful beveled wood shelve for perement use . I think it's of the vintage 233G, pay slot type. Do you know where I might find the top and bottom keys. Gerry (305) 345-7265

      I wonder if you paid for some of these phones in change. Ha ha. Seriously, I've only seen the black and the red, wondering where the phone company had planned to put the pink?

      The white payphones were installed in See's candy shops and hospitals, My red payphones was installed in a show room floor of a Harley-Davidson motor cycle shop. Outside payphone booths either had black or beige, some cases chrome in the beach area's. I only seen one pink payphone installed and that was in a place called Kenrick's Baby News. They sold baby & children clothes.
