Land (Line) of The Lost: Vintage TelephonesBy Diana Cook
Although they seem to be going the way of the dinosaur, one company is keeping vintage landlines ringing. Dedicated to preserving “the telephones of yesterday for tomorrow”, OldPhoneworks.com offers a huge selection of old school phones and parts.
Looking for a pink Princess Phone from the 60s? A candlestick design? Or perhaps cartoon novelty is more your style. The hundreds of phones available are easily sorted by date, color or manufacturer. In addition, their Production Props department allows you to rent vintage phones from the 1880s to today. Phones for purchase start out at around $20 – but be warned some of the pricier models, like the “Nile Green Western Electric with Chrome Trim” (pictured above) will set you back $2500.00.
