These are some of the phones that I've owned at one time or another thanks to kind gifts from friends, scrounging or delving in skips. Some I've used at work, others I borrowed to photograph and finally some from elsewhere I included to illustrate a point or period in history. I've taken some of the ones I own out of their boxes in the loft, dusted them off and polished them up a bit.

I've included short descriptions of each item, but for more detailed historical and technical information I have included links to Bob Freshwater's Telephone File. Where you see Telephone Number nnn the link will open a new window.
I also recommend you visit Peter Walker's Phones.
