A fun look back at technology from the past

I still have the photos I took on one of these.
This week I thought I'd share some of the technology I remember from my young days - just for fun.

My fellow baby boomers will smile and nod, X gen may rack their brains for some distant childhood memory from their parents time and X gen will just scratch their heads. 
No teenager would be without one
This will test even some baby boomers. The fastest message sender in its day.

We had an even older one when I was a kid. You had to pick up the receiver, turn the handle and ask for the number you wanted. "Appin 8 please"
I used to fill this up when Mum and Dad had a shop. Do you know what went in it?

I had my record player but Dad still used one of these
I actually operated one of these in the late 1970s
And the pencil you carried wasn't just to write on the label
Pre photocopiers
I didn't actually use one of these but I did work in a pay office and have to calculate working hours from the cards.
How many of these do you remember?
