Haha... not really back to front Art... in NZ in the early days of automatic telephone exhanges each city ran their own system... the capital city, Wellington , decided its system was best when the cities(areas) could call each other the Wellington dial became universal... the zero was in the same position but one where 9 is..etc.This is the reason our emergency number is 111 rather then 999, or variants. After zero a series of ones (9 in the other dial) is least likely to be accidently dialed. In modern electronic telecom gear most other emergency numbers are also recognised..for visiting foreigners.

Art, you just seriously dated yourself.  :lol:   However, I remember marvelling at the same items, so I guess that dates me too.  :lol:  :lol:

 

All clowning aside, that is a nicely done shot.  :)

 

Yup, I suppose I did date myself.  I am shocked I had this thing.  Being a pack rat has its dividends!  ITS EVEN BLACK!! That is BEFORE color!!! :lol:
