Add a memory or information about this object
- The 700 series had taken hold quite strongly when I joined the GPO Telephones in the late 60s. They were well made and easy to work on. I preferred the 746 series when they made an appearance as the case had a handhold area at the rear which made it easier to pick up. It also had a single screw at the rear to easily remove the case whereas the 706 series had two fixing screws on the top where the handset rested. One extra screw made a difference when you were removing many cases on a job.
