|As telephone collectors feverishly
pursue the potbellies, wood wall magneto phones, one
each of anything made by Western Electric and all the
other treasures documented in the collector
publications, we often trip over things we weren't
looking for, or unusual variations that give us lots
(And are often much cheaper!)
This site began as a single page of hand-coded HTML in the mid-1990s as a place to showcase a few telephone-related oddities found at yard sales and flea markets. I've kept the vintage look and feel to help us remember how the internet looked in simpler times.
With the encouragement of and contributions from fellow collectors, the site has grown to include reference information for phone enthusiasts as well.

several pages are not working on all browsers.
