The SEEANDBEE Telephone at the JKL Museum

While working on the cataloging project at the JKL Museum, we discovered a small ships telephone made by Kellogg. The telephone is located in the telephone museum’s section for telephones made for use outside and or in hazardous locations or for the use on ships.

This little black telephone is made from sheet metal and fitted with a transmitter marked “STEAMER SEEANDBEE” and “KELLOGG” on the faceplate.  The receiver is secured with a nickel plated clamp to prevent it from falling.
