Filipe Medeiros There's a collector in San Jose, CA who collects and repairs these old phones. It's not too hard to fix since, at the time, they were basically just a wire, a bell, and the handset. They did weigh a ton though!

Rebecca A Brown Still have my grandmothers old phone from the 40's / 50's. We had a lot of conversations on that phone. Sometimes I pick up the receiver and pretend to talk to her. The # is still on it. ❤️ RIP Mimi
Patricia Waller Mays My Grandma had a red phone that she had my whole life.When she stopped using it, I always wanted it. To my surprise, I found it in an old shed in her backyard while looking for jars. It was in a box full of junk. I brought it home, cleaned it up and it works perfectly! Yes, we had many conversations on that old phone. I love it!

Judi Hellen You couldn't break them. I wonder what they were made of
Marie Jones Hi Judy, the photo is of my mother Fay and the phones were made of "Bakelite" a registered synthetic resin and plastic material-many old radio's were also made of this.
