… do they still exist?
My daughter returned from an InterRailing tour of Eastern Europe recently and brought back this photo of the Nortel office in Bratislava.
I wonder what would happen if you rang the doorbell?
Now, my vague recollection of “Nortel Logo History” leads me to believe that the logo shown on the door in Bratislava was launched in 1995; timed with the company’s 100th anniversary and under the leadership of Paul Stern (gulp…) and the re-branding from “Northern Telecom”.
I also recall that the logo was very short-lived as a Canadian (?) company called “Ortel” seemed to have a problem with it. It very quickly changed to incorporate the words “Northern Telecom” beneath the “Nortel”.
So – anyone in Bratislava in 1995 and would care to comment on why a 15 year old logo adorns the door of an office?
