Default 2 digit telephone numbers

"John Stumbles" wrote in message
Anyone know when 2 digit telephone numbers were used?

I found a reference to my grandfather's shop in Salcombe which had a phone
number of "Salcombe 16" which I'd like to put a (rough) date to.

Check when Salcombe exchange was converted from manual. Morecambe used
two-digit numbers just into the early 1970's (e.g. Child & Longden:
Morecambe 26)
