This certificate's fantastic vignette of an array of old wall phones.
The Zenith City Telephone Company was incorporated in Superior, Wisconsin and operated a system in Duluth, Minnesota.
Service began in 1899, and, for a time, it was the second largest independent phone company in Minnesota.
The company was closely aligned with the People's Telephone Company of Superior, Wisconsin, explaining the incorporation of the company in Wisconsin.
