My FIL has quite a collection of phones and Bell memorabilia since he retired from there, even part of an old switchboard. Need to help him get it all out of boxes one of these days and get it all displayed.
I am also barely old enough to remember my parents leasing their phones from the phone company. Had a large selection of cream, squash yellow, pea green, lipstick red, and black to choose from. Also old enough to remember party lines too.
