We had this same model on top of our Christmas tree every year. My mum’s pride and joy.
The ubiquitous school clocks, and the pencil sharpeners I used every day.
My first cassette recorder. How I loved that!
8-Track music tapes. When I bought a car that came with an 8-track player, I had to go out and buy some to play as I drove along.
The first camera I owned in my teens. An Instamatic with flashcube!
The machine for making card transactions. The flimsy paper was rubbed over your card placed in the carriage, and you got a copy as thin as a tissue.
