The wall telephone was used in most homes after 1911. The sizes, shapes, colours and materials changed over the years and the demand grew for more than one phone per household.
An early Government of Saskatchewan model 1900, this telephone was acquired by the museum in 1983.
The first telephone company in Regina was Bell Canada Company. By the Fall of 1882, the town boasted 20 telephones in use on 10 private lines.
