Avalon Scrap Pile

A. Dale commented that he remembered the scrap drives at the
Desk set, white with brass dial and hand set
 Illinois Bell Co --
have you seen this phone?
Capitol Theater in Bridgeport and the Avalon in Lawrenceville. Donation of scrap was the ticket to admission for the movie. His dad was manager of the Capitol Theater at the time. (1944) There are two  pictures of the scrap pile in front of the Avalon in 1943 on our website  

Mr. Dale was able to identify two people in the crowd. One was seven year old Chuck Kelly. The other was the Avalon manager at the time, Earl Stevens.
