An "Electrical Nostalgia" Area has just been opened. (Not too fond of the Title, and open to suggestions)

Some existing threads have been moved into this area. If you know of any more that should go in there please point them out.

Any Contributions to this area are appreciated. Old photos, Photos of old equipment, Old Books, Advertisements, etc. etc. Old Stories, even Old Electricians [Linked Image]

send 'em in (please include available info)

I like both the site and the title. There is a real need to document "old stuff," so we can understand it when we see it.

Some nice contributions so far.
Anyone else care to send something in?

Don't we have some collectors here?

These people carry the old 'pudhbutton' K&T switch replacements, as well as brass plates for them.

I've seen one, the only dif is the grounding screw available on the switch yoke, otherwise a rather well imitated rebuild of the original
