Telephone, Automatic DialAbout this object
This black automatic dial telephone is from the 1950s when automatic dial phones were being introduced into New Zealand. The rubber shoulder pad wedge on the unit allowed the phone to be comfortably held between the head and shoulder meaning that both the users hands were free to do other things. Additionally, this model has a draw at the front which pulls out to reveal a plastic casing in which the owner could keep phone listings in.Maker
