About Us

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 15-20 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. What started as a hobby for me, quickly turned into a obsession, spending countless hours dismantlaing, rewiring, rebuilding and restoring these phones back to life, and the rest is history...

This website has lots of useful information on vintage public phones including old manuals, user guides, and advertising artwork. All the items on this website are 100% free and available for immediate download, simply right click on the download button below the item description and select 'Save As' or 'Save Link As', and save to a location on your hard drive.
