An old and rare and collectable..

CALCULAGRAPH No 10625

This has been manufactured by.....
CALCULAGRAPH CO
HARRISON
N.J.
U.S.A.

The patent date stamped on it is.....
SEPT. 13 1892

It is 9 and 3/4 inches diameter
and 9 inches high to the top of the handles

The clock face is 5 and a 1/4 inches diameter

And what was it used for?
A card was put into slot at the rear of the top, and the left lever pulled forward. This stamped the time and date on the card for the beginning of a phone call
When the call ended the same card was put into the slot, and the right lever pulled forward which stamped the time and date on the card

I guess that billing for the call was based on this recorded time period

Both handles and the clock front move freely

It has not been cleaned for the auction

An old and rare CALCULAGRAPH in good condition
