Three Slot Payphone
Three slot payphones have been around and in service since the very early 1900's. They could be found on nearly every street corner, or in any business, hotel and stadium across North America.
They were taken out of service in the late 1970's and replaced with single slot units. Millions were destroyed by the phone company. They were tossed into Lake Michigan from the side of barges, buried in landfills or smelted into metal blocks for other uses. A shame for sure!
They were the staple for communicating when away from home prior to the common use of the cell phones. Phone companies are doing away completely with pay phones due to the high repair and maintenance costs from vandals. Look around; there are few that remain.
People lied, cried, argued, were in love, called for help and conducted business; legal and not so legal at times! It was an easy way for the Fed's to tap phones and listen to illegal conversations for organized crime and criminal activity. Much history indeed!
After years of faithful service and unthinkable abuse, we
are bringing them back
to their original beauty and function, and then some.
All of the phones are original, authentic, and completely refurbished for another century of service. Take a look at what is available, what is possible and the care that goes into refurbishing a piece of American history.
