Overview

A retrospective snapshot of living in the Public Service of the GPO and BT...

At over 400 pages, My GPO Family is a perfect-bound paperback telling the story of growing up, living and working in the Public Service of the GPO and BT between 1965 and 2016. Packed with an eclectic mix of personal stories, recollections, poems and thoughts of how the General Post Office evolved into the communication companies which serve us today. Visits and verbatim reports of the emerging heritage scene capture the essence of bygone days in a comprehensive, but easy to understand format. Although written primarily for those who worked in the telecommunication and clerical side of the business, during the 20th century, any GPO family will be able to relate to the ethos of the era. With more than 30 (black and white) illustrations/photographs, this book will take you on a journey back to a time when people proudly worked in Public Service.
