Telephone Answering Machine

<< >>
Description (Brief)
This Morsephone model KH-270B answering machine is connected to a Sony model M-7 micro-cassette recorder. The cassette recorder has been modified, possibly by the user, so as to connect to the Morsephone. This modular adaptation permits the user to record telephone messages when needed but also allows the recorder to be used for other tasks.
