Your comments:

  • Model is a HL20/1A substation. It is an internal office telephone & not a switchboard, as such.The 20 = that the phone has 20 connections,A = that the phone is capable of connecting to an automatic telephone system, the 1 = that it has a connection to a single master station. A 52way cable(Actually 55 wires) was used to connect the individual sub stations. Superceded in the early 60's by the DHL20/1A.
