Hi my name is Mick, I'm a collector and I buy, repair and restore old and interesting items, including early coin operated devices. A few years ago I had the opportunity to purchase my first red Victa payphone from a garage sale in Sydney. The gentlemen that sold me the phone had no idea if it was working or not and said it had been sitting in a garage for at least years. At the time, there was very little information available on how repair and restoring these phones, and most of the technicians that worked on the phones had now retired.
Mike's Vintage Telephones is my 25 year collection of antique and vintage telephones. Included are many individual examples and subcollections such as colored s and 23 series paystations by companies such as Western Electric, Gray and many others. As time goes on other aspects of the collection will be added to the website.

The video shows him picking up its receiver and getting a dial tone, and then using its old-fashioned dial pad to make actual phone calls. One modification he had to make was to prevent the phone from requiring a coin deposit before activating its handset, and from getting backed up in the phone itself. Finnie was also pleased that this payphone even came from an indoor location, so after all of these years, its shiny chrome was surprisingly undamaged.
