Nice! I like the vintage feel that continues on after asking you to hold...and finally the if you MUST leave a message at the end :)
sounds like an order step switch
The Castanet-like clicking is actually revertive pulsing. That's an old type of signaling that was used to transmit a called phone number to another exchange. This is completely different from the pulsing of a rotary dial telephone or Step-by-Step exchange.
The musical sounds are multifrequency pulsing. It's also completely different from the tones made by touch-tone telephones. Revertive pulsing is often associated with Panel exchanges, but in this case, the pulsing is into a Crossbar exchange.
Step-by-Step exchanges could receive neither multifrequency nor revertive pulsing. But in some cities, the ringing signals of Step offices would often sound the same as Panel and Crossbar central offices.
this is when they had the party lines
Hey Elmer, no one gives a sh1t!
I think it's cool, especially because it's something that's no longer available for the average person to just listen to when it was the only thing available at this particular time it was state of the art technology. Thanks for sharing Elmer, there will come a day when the cell phones we use along with the sounds they make when we're making a call will be replaced with something else that might have us thinking how we ever used something that took ao much time & became so outdated.
