be continued after the picture set...
small field telephone in a wooden case was made in Petrograd
by Politechnical Institute laboratory.
Judging by Directions For Use contained inside the box, this
was an artillery reconnaissance device manufactured between
1914 and 1917 when Russian Empire was involved in the WW I.
one of St. Petersburg's state owned museums we have seen
similar small field telephone with serial number exceeding
1800 while serial number of our sample is just 63.
into account limited production capability of Petrograd
Polytechnical Institute laboratory, we may safely suggest
that our sample was manufactured at the very beginning
of WW I, i.e. by late 1914 or early 1915.
