An oak-cased wall mounted telephone manufactured by the Canadian Independent Telephone Company of Toronto, Ontario.
Their name was usually abbreviated as "C.I.T.Co."
CITCo. was purchased by a former employee named Edwin S. Rogers in the 1920s.
As a child, Rogers was a prodigy who focused his interests on broadcasting a receiving radio signals.
So, the holdings of the former CITCo company were used to create one of Canada's most popular radio manufacturing companies, Rogers-Majestic.
I was given this telephone by the Campbell family of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada.
It used to be owned by James George Cornell, former Reeve (Mayor) of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada and founding member of the Farmers' Dairy Company of Toronto.
For years Cornell was not hooked up to a main line, this phone was attached in a line with only one other phone on the property.
