These are the vintage switches that I installed in my room with the wallplate removed.

Looks good! But just a little tidbit of info for you, your ground wires are wrapped around the screws in the wrong direction. When wires are wrapped under a screw they should always, always, always be wrapped clockwise under the screw, so when you tighten the screw you are tightening the loop. With the screw wrapped counterclockwise, when you tighten the screw the loop is more likely to slip out from under the screw and make a poor connection. With a hot of neutral, you can create an arcing hazard. I hope your hot wires on the switches are at least hooked clockwise?

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

I did the hot wires and yes they are clockwise. My dad did the ground wires. I guess he shouldn't be trusted.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
