GPO 746 Telephone - One Off Unique Issue
« on: March 09, 2018, 05:37:44 PM »
This week I was fortunate enough to take delivery of this telephone, another eBay bargain at UK£20 plus £6.50 postage.

The telephone is a 746 in Topaz (mustard colour), what makes it unique is the wording that has been etched on the front to commemorate that it was the 100,000th residential telephone installation in the York area (of the UK).

The month and year I started my 37 1/2 year career with the Telco here!

Nice Find. Makes it just that much more interesting.
