Telephone equipment.


Early style telephone lighting/surge arrestor and you noticed right below of that device there is a small black box below of it with new white wires] that is latter model of surge/lighting arrestor.

Merci, Marc

Has anyone mentioned that it’s an old telephone carbon arrestor? :mrgreen:

Yep , yank it out.
Wait I better ask Mike,as it might be a doorbell.
