Once was technology Part 1


How excited do you get about new technology? A new app or the latest gadgets from Apple. But I’m more excited when I stumble upon a relic from the past that once was technology.

Like this old Teledex or Autodex. Whatever you want to call it your mum probably had one of these sitting next to the telephone. It’s pre mobile phone and your mum kept all the important “contacts” stored inside. From Aunty Beryll right through to Jim the Plumber. Take particular note of the faux timber veneer paneling and brushed aluminium. Very retro chic.

* A special thanks to my kid brother for picking up this ripper gadget from his local op shop in Brunswick. Gotta love hipsters who hoard.
