WESTERN ELECTRIC 202 TELEPHONE


Today I'm posting photos of my 1936 Western Electric 202 Telephone.

I love old phones and to me, this is THE desk phone. Every hollywood movie from the 30's and 40's had this phone.


I found mine in a thrift store a few years ago and then later bought the ringer box to go with it.

The phone works fine except for dialing as someone at sometime replaced the dial with a different dialer...? I'm on the hunt for a western electric dial that will work with mine.

I love the weight and solid-ness of the phone. If you don't own an older dial phone, then you should pick on up. The 500 series are fairly easy to find and affordable. 202 are hard to find and are not cheap, but if you do see one... get it!
