This famous bakelite telephone is nicknamed " R E D B A R ". The orig.
build-in ringer was replaced by a newer & smaller version.  The cables
of handset & line connections were detoriorated,  needed refurbishing:
As described in  AE-40  there is a  PROBLEM  with soldering the wires.
ANOTHER SOLUTION:  After exposing the copper-wires,  I wrapped a piece
of aluminum foil  around the existing insulation,  bent the wires back
and wrapped the foil around.  Than I pressed it in the OLD, UNFOLDED &
CLEANED metal hook connector to have the electric contact ...
R E M A R K A B L E :
The NETWORK is wired by pre-formed metal stripes.  The DIALER, mounted
in the cover, is connected with the Network on the base by a PLUG - So
the CONDENSORS - No flying wires !!!
