Calthorpe Telephone Exchange
Calthorpe Telephone Exchange
Located at 136 Pershore Road B5 7NY, this TE serves Calthorpe, plus Balsall Heath and Highgate nearby. The front building would appear to date from the 1930s with the wording "TELEPHONE EXCHANGE" above its door while the extension behind it was added more recently. This TE used to have CALthorpe numbers until the late 1960s, but now has 0121-440 and 446 xxxx numbers. BT Openreach vehicles can be seen in front of the TE and behind the metal gates at the left of the photo.
