About GPO 746
The GPO 746 is rich in UK history. Born in 1967 and similar to its earlier model, the 706, this rotary phone represents a time in history when life was cheaper, but phone calls cost a pretty penny. Back then, customers had to rent their phones from the General Post Office and pay as much as 5 cents a minute for local phone calls after 6:00 pm. Luckily, phone calls are much cheaper now, and there are more options than one for your home phone. However, you can still buy these late '60s-style vintage phones on eBay. During the time these were made, manufacturers designed phones to stay functioning through the decades, so they still work just fine today. Plus, who doesn't like to use the classic dial every once in a while? These retro phones are available in the old-fashioned two-toned colours as well as solid colour options. Spin the dial on your own rotary GPO 746 and feel yourself go back in time.
