The switchboard consumed a bit of time finding the recipient within the
building complex, if they weren't at their desk (this would be for

This was done almost exclusively by tannoy messages, which of course
resulted in people making prank calls for eg "Mr Ivor Biggun" (which
they'd read out if told the person was a visitor).
