Putting you through now caller
They would be now thrown out but I think we used to use concertina filing boxes with file names written on tabs and I expect there may well have been a tab marked PMG, Postmaster General's Department. No, that change happened in 1975, so pre us.
Some large service pits in the footpaths have steel plates covers still with PMG. Some have Telecom and some have Telstra. Sometimes there is a combination of plates with two different names on them but I have never seen a pit with all three names.
Naturally being of a certain age, I lament the loss of PMG back in the days when making a telephone call was a serious business.
