Ah, the good old days! Note the actual dial. How about an old cord switchboard? Yours truly had a job with an old school cord board in the late 70’s and early 80’s as well as a “modern” PBX system. It was a nice skill set back in the day. (Just call me Ernestine!) I was thinking that this book was so out of date that today’s kids (as well as the parents) wouldn’t even recognize the equipment.
I will be busy having an age crisis. Leave a message with the operator.
