It is possible they were GTE. GTE's clone of AT&T's manufacturing arm
Western Electric, was called "Automatic Electric" and GTE pay phones
were beige; I never saw any other color. This was in Long Beach,
California (and possibly Santa Monica and some other beach cities)
circa 1973-1987 (when our family left California).
