TELEPHONE No. 76


Candlestick table telephone used on S.T. & C's (late Western Electric Co.) Rotary Exchanges at Darlington and Dudley.

The components could not be fitted within the case of the telephone so a Bellset No. 1 with bias spring would be installed.

Mark 234 - WESTERN ELECTRIC Co. - Used on Darlington Exchange (used Dial No. 5).
Mark 235 - WESTERN ELECTRIC Co. - Used on Dudley Exchange (used Dial No. 6).

Some of the information here was taken from Diagram N176, the original dated 1918 and the issue 2, dated 1919.  The Issue 2 diagram shows the Mk235 set with a Dial No. 6.  The GPO Stores Rate Book 1928 confirms the above but also introduces the Dial, Automatic No. 8FW in place of the Dial, Automatic No. 6.  A Dial, Auto No. 10FW may also be found on these telephones.

The equivalent wall set is the Telephone No. 65.

Shown superseded by the Telephone No. 150W in 1928.
