Post Office Durium - Luckiy Find

Postby Gmemg » 19 May 2017, 07:37

"The Squire" was "Out and About" recently and proving that if you see so shall ye find he did ! he found in an otherwise unremarkable heap of records a durium - now i know that to actually find a heap of 78s is hard enough anywhere but this time he really did strike it lucky - he found a very unusual Durium record indeed with no matrix number and no idea of who's speaking it just say's

"Post office Telephones - Automatic Telephone Tones "

we assume it was placed in the back of new Telephone directories to infomr people of the "New" direct dialling tones - previously tyou had to run a call through your local exchange


here's the Video we did of it

Wealth without work. Pleasure without conscience. Knowledge without character .Commerce without morality. Science without humanity. Worship without sacrifice. Politics without principle.

Money. Greed. Naivety. Falsehoods. Exploitation. Welcome to the wonderful world of gramophones!

is this square?
I had a square flexible record with some very odd tones on it once but it was pretty unplayable!
