- Have one in my collection. I love the fact it still has different departments' names on it such as ie, kitchen, school, nurse, etc. Like a lot of these gems.there is history to it. I can only imagine the calls made on it. looks more 1950's than 60's?.

- I used to work for Reliance Telephone Co in the late 70' and early 80's. I actually used to maintain these intercom's, they were know as "cheese dish" intercom's as they looked like a classic cheese dish.
They worked via a set of round batteries that used to be housed in a wooden box (usually in the cupboard) and had to be changed every so often.
I was walking around my local aviation museum last year, and was surprised to see they had one on display too.

- This is a Reliance(GEC) Intercommunication Telephone. 21 Line version. If this was used with the master station the plate between the switch hooks would have three lenses for the red, green and white lamps to indicate a master station was calling.
