The Bell System Telephone Story Poster - The AT&T Telephone Story (1990/1993)

 

 

Courtesy of Coen Meeder

This 24" by 20" poster was distributed around 1965 to Bell System customers by Western Electric for free. It is very similar to the 1969 version but note the PicturePhone is the earlier, MOD I model and not the MOD II.

In order to be able to read the descriptions that appear under each of the thirty photo images in this poster, Coen Meeder scanned the poster in six sections (that's all that would fit on the scanner at one time!) at 600 dots per inch. I then "spliced" the six cropped sectional scans together and created a HUGE file (about 6 Megabytes).

You can view a close-up of each phone shown in the poster below simply move your mouse over the one you want to view and click! You can also "zoom" in on the AT&T description of the poster by clicking on the AT&T logo or the description under the logo.
