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.

Looking back through the telephone directories on http://www.ancestry.co.uk/
it seems that the first entry of E Stumbles, 74 Fore Street, Salcombe was in
1922 and had the number of Salcombe 16.
The last entry for E Stumbles, 74 Fore Street, Salcombe was in 1961 - still
with the number Salcombe 16
There were no more entries after this date.
I hope that helps - Steve
