TELEPHONE No. 152
Introduced in 1936, this is a telephone housed in a Teak box, suspended by extendable rods and balance weights, from an overhead rail.
This was a special item only used in Billingsgate Fishmarket, London.
The phone was mounted in the box which could be lowered via a system of pulleys or moved sideways on overhead rails.
You can just about see two telephone boxes, one to
the left above the two chaps heads
The two pictures above show the telephone
