Default 2 digit telephone numbers

The message
from John Stumbles contains these words:

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.

Up to the mid-1950s on many small exchanges.
