6 Antique 1913-26 New York Telephone Installation Department Photos Trucks Crew


I am pleased to offer this lot of 6 Antique 1913-1926 New York Telephone Installation Department Photographs! 

The oldest photograph is cabinet card style, and shows the entire Installation department posing for a group photograph on 11-29-1913.

The following 4 photographs show different installation crews posing in front of their antique service trucks, each of which is labeled with the names of the men shown. 

The last photograph shows the entire installation department for the company posing for a group shot in May of 1926. 

Each of the photos, with exception to the last 1926 photo, is stamped “Property of Frazier R. Chambers”, who was likely the photographer.

The New York Telephone company was organized in 1896, and is now known as holding of Verizon New York, Inc.

Cabinet card photo measures approx. 9-1/2″ W x 7-3/4″ H;  The other photos measure approx. 6-15/16″ W x 4-15/16″ H



These antique photographs are in good condition for their age. The 1913 cabinet photo shows some mild wear to the card, and very light staining from age. The remaining photographs show some light edge wear, and writing in ink on either the front or back of each photo.
