Telegraphic treasures in Victorian town of Beachworth.

As we are leisurely traveling through High Country of Victoria, I've come across a Post office Telegraph museum:










The lady "attendant", informed me that there are "at least" three old gentlemen coming some afternoons and use the equipment.  Each has their preferred key or paddle and they use it.  She switched on one of the setups for me and let me try it.  It sounded good.

Pity she had to leave for lunch and I could not meet any of the old timers.
