THIS IS ME WITH MY FIRST ANTIQUE PHONE.  I GOT IT AS A TEEN FROM AN ANTIQUE STORE IN INTERCOURSE PA.   I PAID $40 FOR IT WITH THE RINGER BOX.
BACK IN 1990 I BUILT THIS SHOW CASE FOR MY TELEPHONE COLLECTION, YES AT THAT TIME THIS WAS MY COLLECTION.  I ALSO JOINED THE ATCA AND TCI AT THAT TIME.

MY HOBBY, I COLLECT AND RESTORE ANTIQUE TELEPHONES AND PAYPHONES.  FOR WHAT EVER REASON I HAVE HAD AN INTEREST IN TELEPHONES SINCE I WAS A KID.  I BECAME REAL SERIOUS ABOUT IT AROUND 1990 AND AT THAT TIME JOINED THE TELEPHONE COLLECTING CLUBS (LINKS TO THEIR SITES ARE ON MY HOME PAGE)  I FOUND THEM TO BE A GREAT RESOURCE NOT ONLY FOR FINDING PHONES, PARTS AND INFORMATION BUT ALSO FOR MAKING FRIENDS.  I HAVE SERVED AS VICE PRESIDENT OF THE ATCA AND AM PRESENTLY ON THE BOARD.
