Phone of the Day: Toshiba DKT2010S 10 Button with Speakerphone
Today’s phone comes to you from a Kerr Drug in North Carolina.  This is a tired but trusty reliable digital telephone that works on a Toshiba DK Strata Key Telephone system.  I am assuming DK stands for Digital Key system. The phone has an interesting “Teleco” label on it, disguising it from it’s actual Toshiba ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M3904 Hospital Phone
Thank you to our great college friend Raul Yzqueirdo for this picture of a Nortel Meridian M3904 digital telephone set shown at a hospital in Houston Texas.  The M3900 sets are still rather popular in hospital settings due to their durability and wide feature range.  They are also still manufactured new by Avaya to work ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M7208
Today’s photo is from my friend Darrell who snapped this photo at a Mexican restaurant near Rockford, IL.  The photo is of a rather worn Meridian M7208 digital set manufactured to work on the Norstar line of KSU’s from Nortel.  These are not to be confused with the similar looking M2008 series digital phones that ...

Bell Manhole Cover: Noblesville, Indiana
Tucked away in an alley in a quaint restored alley in downtown Noblesville, IN, I found this really cool relic of the old “ma bell” days in the telephone world.  Yes, I’ve seen many of these covers in Chicago with MCI, Level 3, ATT, Ameritech imprinted on them….but it was so appropriate in this restored ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M3903 Taurus Digital Set University of Michigan
Hi everyone, today’s phone is from the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor from a friend of mine who works on campus.  It looks as though the hospital is running on their own private digital Meridian One PBX, while the University itself uses Meridian M5000 sets running on Centrex and Cisco IP sets. Go ...

Phone of the Day: Nortel M2006 Digital Telephone Shedd Aquarium Chicago, IL

Phone of the Day: Nortel M2006 Digital Telephone Shedd Aquarium Chicago, IL
Today’s phone is a the main entry to the Shedd Aquarium in Chicago, IL.  Unfortunately the phone is a bit yellowed, the original color is more of a ash/white color.  If their telephone vendor only knew that they could get a replacement phone for peanuts, say in black color, and it would look like a ...

Phone of the Day: Cisco 7911 IP Phone H&M Style
Today’s phone was spotted 2 weeks ago on a hot steamy Lafayette, IN afternoon at H&M at Tippecanoe Mall!  Yes an H&M in Lafayette, Indiana.  It’s the last place I would have expected to see an ultra modern Euro store, considering about 1 mile east of the mall are farm fields, Tractor Supply Company and ...

Phone of the Day: Red Cortelco Bell System style Intercom Phone Meijer Store
This hotline red phone was spotted at a brand new Meijer store in Portage, IN.  It’s for customer use to call for help in finding an item.  On the other side is standard phone connected to their Avaya PBX, but they obviously don’t want you on their phone system.
