WANTED: Old Teletype Corporation TTY equipment (1930s - 1950s)

Hello. I am looking for vintage, old Teletype Corporation equipment (teletypewriters), from the 1930s - 1950s. I want to preserve as much of this equipment as possible. Teletype communications, in addition to being used by the deaf community, was the primary method of communication in the world for many decades!

I am especially looking for ‘Model 15’ machines, or cabinets only. Attached are photos of a Model 15, and Model 28-ASR. I’m looking for units close to New Jersey, since they are very heavy, and shipping them is cost prohibitive.

Doug W.

I had lots of Western Union Teletype model 28s, one model 15 and one Teletype model 28-ASR for selling and installing last 15 years ago. But all of them were thrown to junk. I m very sorry.

ahhh...memory lane!...Not sure of the Model...but I trained in the Print Shop at NCSD to be a teletype operator and a linotype operator back in the 60's....and worked at a small newspaper in NC as a teletype/linotype operator, along with a few other deafies....

Not sure if any newspapers or deaf schools would keep these machines...I do remember going into the attic at a newspaper once, and saw many old teletype and linotype machines in storage....

We have one! It's a great conversation piece for when people come over. Even with our Deaf friends.

I used to see the OLD one at our deaf club for so many years. It's now gone. It was an interesting piece, to say the least.

TSD has a museum and they have the ancient TTY. I visited the museum several years ago.
