Standaardtoestel T65 / Standard telephone T65

Standaardtoestel T65 / Standard telephone T65
This was the standard telephone in the Netherlands during the time that the telephone company was a state company. The phone was made by Krone, Ericsson and other companies. Made from 1965 until the late 1980s.

The T is for table (there was also a W65, the W is for Wall) and 65 is the year of introduction.

In those days telephoning was serious business. You were only supposed to use the telephone when Germans were invading the country or the dykes were about to break.

There were a few other telephones available, mainly this one in different colours. From the 1970s onwards, push button phones were available.

The main disadvantage of this phone was that if you picked up the receiver, the phone came with it, because it was so light. That didn't happen with those old bakelite phones.
