Inside the train depot, help is a call away and bandages hang nearby. The phone is a wall-mount oak wood, double box. On the rim of the mouthpiece is the manufacture's name: Kellogg. (No, this is not the Kellogg cereal family.) In 1893 and 1894 Alexander Graham Bell's patents expired, leaving the field open to other inventors. In 1897, Milo G. Kellogg founded the Kellogg Switchboard and Supply Company, which became known for superior technology. Kellogg also invented the "No. 1 Microphone telephone" which had the transmitter and receiver in one handset. Kellogg's company made switchboards for other phone companies and competed through the years with Bell Systems and Western Electric. More information is on the internet, and there are some of those antique phones for sale.
