Wow - the picture reminds me of the days of offices wired with 25 pair cabling and push button line selector phones. I remember when tone dialing came out you could use the switchhook to pulse dial (and still can today on some POTS lines/LEC carriers) ...you would quickly press the switchhook (hangup button) multiple times the number of times for each number dialed - that is quickly press it 6 times for the number 6 and so on.Soundjudgment wrote:Yep. The top of the phone was the 'Client Address Book' where the dialing-cards were to be stored in alphabetical order. Naturally, each of the cards could only be 'programmed' once. No editing allowed. :psouthsound wrote: Ahhh. How far we have come. I remember my first auto dial telepone. It used cards to store the numbers!
Wow - telcom has come a long way... I know old timers like me and ole' Baby Bell employees like Southsound remember.
