This catalog was produced by the Western Electric Defense Activities Division.
The file has been compiled & processed by Remco Enthoven and bookmarked by Paul Fassbender.
We hope you will enjoy this new addition to our site.
The file can also be downloaded from the TCI Library at:

We have put the final touch on our rotary dial AE panel phone by adding a paper mat. It took a while finding the right type of paper. It is not exactly the same as the original but the texture is very close and I think it looks pretty good.The touch tone version has an original mat.The last photo shows both AE type 95 panel phones on display at our museum.
New photos have been added to the photo slider at the bottom of the homepage: https://www.jklmuseum.com/
