A Superb Archive of Nine Telephone Equipment Photograph Books. Ca. 1920’s to 1930’s though the equipment photographed is primarily from earlier periods in telephone history. An exceptional variety of approximately 300 photographs of early telephones and telephone components are represented with some of the equipment dating as far back as 1878. In addition to the equipment represented, nearly 100 additional photos of various schematics and designs of telephone equipment are included bringing the total number of photos to approximately 400. These are first generation photographs and all are linen backed to facilitate their binding within the volumes. Recently acquired from a private collection, these photo albums were lodged in a corporate archive for many years. A typed list index indicating the specific photos is attached to the front of each volume. The photos are generally in excellent condition. Bindings display some marginal wear but remain intact. Truly an extraordinary and rare opportunity to acquire such a visually important trove of technology images related to the early telephone.
