232 Auto Wall Phone

 

This wall phone was introduced in the early 1930s to replace the ageing wooden wall phones. It was not particularly successful, and was only brought in in fairly small numbers. It competed unsuccessfully with the Type 37 wall phone, that seems to have outlasted it.

It was built in Britain by Siemens and AT&E, although some may have been assembled in Australia. It was soon replaced by the more successful 300 series. Research is needed into this rather neglected little phone, which at least deserves some recognition as Australia's first bakelite wall phone.
