When the Overland telegraph was first set up in Australia and for the next
twenty years, all telephonists were Male, in the 1950's & 1960's they were
all female, today in the nineties the mix is about 60/40 m/f.
The main difference is I believe, is that ladies are more facile and are
more fastidious about detail which is afterall something I seek in
prospective applicants for Histo.
