C O O L :                                        made by BELL, Antwerp

      ... it works well today too - especially when the power is off !

                      Historical Remarks ...

"RTT" = Regie voor Telegfraaf en Telefoon (1930) ... = BELGACOM (1992)
        =          =             =
R E M A R K S :
======================================================================
The  telephone  came  with broken cradle,  broken  white number layer,
broken ground-key,  broken cables,  missing screws inside  and damaged
dial-center.  Inside on the bottom was the WIRE DIAGRAM glued ...



     ... 1st TEST of its ELECTRO-MECHANICS resulted in: "It works !!!"

In  2013  restored to its beauty & functionality  -  BUT 2 FRONT-HOLES
( tiny,  1/2" = 12.5 mm  distance ) are waiting for replacement of the
MISSING "RTT" LOGO BADGE ...

              

... "THANKS!" to my friend GERHARD GOTTSMANN, BERLIN, a Model-Railway/
Train-Sets COLLECTOR  - and gifted (!) RESTORATOR -  made this missing
LOGO BADGE out of brass-sheet. He used old technology of making print-
circuit-boards in photo-lithography: WOW!  (L =) A detail picture of a
web screenshot;  (M =) THE GIFT;  (R =) drilled, painted  &  mounted.
