 by astoness , Sun Jul 04, 2010 6:54 am

well i stayed on an extra year at school to take cse exams and shorthand typing and in those days jobs were plentiful..i remember i went for 6 interviews and was offered 5 out of the 6 so i was spoilt for choice...anyway decided to take a job with a little family run wholesale jewellers in vyse st as a typist come general dogs body...i loved it...apart from the typing i made the tea..fetched the sarnies from the cafe..run errands..took the post down to key hill post office at the end of the day..just about everything really..then i did switchboard training at the gpo and found another job as a telephonist..loved that as well and beleive you me those switchboards could get very hetic and more than once i got me wires crossed lol....but very happy days indeed.. recenty went amberley museum and guess what i spotted and just could not resist it...there was one of my old switchboards..wonder if volty could handle one of these lol...
