Telephone No 17

Similar to the Tele No 15, this version was made by British Insulated and Helsby. It was their Model T489. Although a catalogue illustration shows it with an unbranded Ericsson transmitter, the Australian model would generally have been fitted with a Solid Back transmitter as shown here. From possibly as early as 1900.
