1958 WESTERN ELECTRIC 500 TELEPHONE

I guess you can tell I like old phones.
Here's another one of mine. If I remember.. it's a 1958 Western Electric 500 Telephone.

This model replaced the 302 and was the work horse for over 50 years. Of course they put a push button model of it in the 80's, but the style of the phone never changed.

The early models of this phone had a metal black finger ring. Later it was made of plastic.

You have to love the original phone number tag...

These were nice as you can adjust the volume of the ringer... I've said it before, but an Old phone, no matter what year or model is a must for the Vintage Gear Guy...
