Australian Post Office
Telephone No. 9

Telephone Magneto Wall, Bridging Type (Deville)

Introduced around 1895, this telephone was made by the British Western Electric Company.  This instrument is similar to the Hunningscone but features a more advanced transmitter which did not suffer packing problems.  Later versions of this telephone feature the PMG No. 1 solid back transmitter with special adapter bracket.
