Met Office communications. Met Office worker pressing a button on a fax control console switching panel. The fax (facsimile) machines used at the Met Office included Mufax machines designed to send and receive weather charts. Transmission was via a signal that carried the information needed to print a duplicate copy of the original chart. The Met Office is the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service. A variety of communication methods have been used during its history. Fax machines were developed in the 1960s. Photographed in Bracknell, at the Met Office headquarters which opened in 1962.
