    This brought back memories of reading the meter for each telephone subscriber so they could be billed, or rectifying faults. Mind you I never had the jumper 😳

    Great archive image. You don't see many of those checked cardigans these days. That look is ready for a comeback I'd say.

    nla.gov.au/nla.obj-460490197/view?sectionId=nla.obj-48039... - this pic appeared in Pix on 23rd November, 1946...in a feature article on the City South exchange, in Sydney... Pix's caption: 'THIS IS WHERE your calls are recorded and your bill calculated—the meter rack. Each little meter shows the subscriber’s telephone number and the number of calls made. If number called is engaged it does not register.'
