Telephone Talk Book bye Dave Dockray. It starts with the invention and the inventors, and then in each chapter, telephones typical of each decade, plus switchboards/telephone exchanges typical of the decade and how calls are connected. Also in these chapters, is a section devoted to the repair and restoration of the telephones of each decade.

In addition to the obvious aspects of telephone history, my book also shows some of the unusual and very interesting telephone related collectibles.
A reader will see items such as toys, postcards, telephone hiders, silver plated items and some of the slightly risqué - inoffensive enough though to be allowed in an elementary school library.
