A early 5 Cent Pay telephone. I found this early model in an antique shop where it had hung for 20 years. The shop owner said I was the second person to ever ask about the telephone.
The Gray telephone pay station manufacture Co. This model is a 23D. This type of pay telephone was use in many rural areas. I use one like this to keep my change in.
The original diagram was still inside.
A new telephone for me! This Gray pay station is very unusual in the fact that it is self contained.
anyone having information on this telephone please drop me a line. So far I have found out the it is a Gary Model 24 Nick name the Wannamaker model Because the Wannamaker Dept stores in Philadelphia used many of these phones. Here is the original picture from the Gray catalog.
