Took my little boy to the local steam/old diesel railway place yesterday and in the museum, was quite taken with their display of an old telephone exchange.

Love the colors but they are kind of small and hard to see!

Very colorful...I can remember the days when they moved a jack from one hole to another to connect you! Yes I'm that old! LOL

Thanks!

I wanted to go for the slightly too contrasty, slightly too saturated grainy 60's film sort of look to match the subject. Not sure if it worked, but everyone seems to like the colours lol.

They had a working automaticanalogue exchange there for people to play with, was brilliant watching all the switches open and close, and the voltmeters going up and down as you dialed.
