ANSAFONE J10 OR MK1 ANSWERING SET, 1950's

Ansafone Ltd launched their newly named company with this model.
Until the 1970's Ansafone was one of only 3 companies to be licensed by the Post Office to make and sell Telephone Answering machines in this country.
Two of the museum's Trustees worked for Ansafone, and this item brings back happy memories for both of them.

Your comments:

  • I acquired a Mk1 Answering set from a house clearance in Maida Vale way back in the early 90s. However mine is slightly different, it comes with a 'pay-tone' fitted with an additional dial which differs from the one pictured. I would like to know more about its history
