We won’t answer on this gem of an antique phone that’s located in our lobby. But this phone is one thing we love about our main office at 2252 Main St. in Glastonbury.
The building was built in 1906 and served as a school until 1930. From then until 1960 it was Glastonbury’s Town Hall.
This antique phone is a wall-mounted hand-crank model by Western Electric consistent with models from the early 20th Century.
