Craven Museum and Gallery receives set of Ediphone equipment
8:40am Saturday 21st January 2012 in Skipton
Recording equipment dating back 100 years has been handed to Skipton’s Craven Museum and Gallery.
Following a refurbishment, Skipton law firm AWB Charlesworth, based in Otley Street, took the opportunity to have a clean out – and donate a complete set of Ediphone equipment. The machines, believed to date back to the early part of the last century, had been on show in the firm’s boardroom for several years.
Property partner Declan Hayes said: “The Ediphones were groundbreaking dictating systems in their time and we are pleased to donate them to the museum to record the history of communications and office technology development.
“Our practice would have benefited from the early use of Ediphones and we continue to embrace new technology and forms of communication.”
