Re: Bell System lanterns
I Have two Bell System lanterns, both Dietz Little Giants. Although their paint is not in top-notch shape, they are both olive drab. In fact, virtually all Bell System equipment was that same olive drab color...including trucks, tools, desks, file cabinets, etc. until, beginning about 1970, white, gold, and light green began to take over. I was a Bell System employee from 1974 until it was dismantled in 1984 and saw a lot of that olive drab paint all over the serving area! Of course, their use of lanterns was already gone by then.
