Telephone Pictures

The telephone has changed over time. As the telephone system improved, so did the telephone itself. Here are some pictures of some old telephones, and links to many others.


Webmaster's note: We don't own any of these phones. We just find pictures of them on the web and show them to you. If you're interested in buying old phones, try PHONECO, Inc.
