Telephone No. 19

Again, a standard Australian Post Office CB wall phone, this time built by Peel Conner as their Model K8140 (the company was an offshoot of British General Electric, who eventually liquidated Peel-Conner). Earlier versions had a two-arm transmitter mount . It dates from about 1904 to 1914. It may also have been built in Australia under license.

These phones were not as common as the WE version, and the early two-arm version is quite uncommon.
