Somebody asked me the other day what it took to get me to scan and post more pictures.
reminded me of the GN orange and then the picture I posted a few minutes ago of the deteriorating UPY switcher made me think about what switchers used to be like.
This "simplified" GN scheme wasn't the pretty orange and green with a gold dividing stripe. It was closer to a black and not nearly so pretty.
