Since 1982, one of the largest privately held Western Electric Telecom collections will be publicly auctioned.

Such items include switchboards, phone booths, telephones, complete systems, test equipment, world war items, Vietnam, 1920 motion-picture sound system, huge display of smaller collectibles and more.
