Telecom Museum

I finally made it out to the telecom museum this week after being on my todo list for nearly two years.

We got the grand tour from a nice man who showed us some of the museums more creatively acquired pieces.

Hearing the mechanical switches and relays clicking and clacking as a call was being routing was an amazing experience. I could have only wished there was more volume of calls to hear the machines at full tilt. It must have been deafening to work in those rooms.

Amoung the dust I spotted a magnetic core memory module and our tour guide and I geeked out about early memory designs and weaving.
