Shanklin Telephone Exchange (4)
Shanklin Telephone Exchange (4)
This photo shows the Edward VIII cipher and the year 1936 above the entrance of this TE. Edward VIII was the uncrowned king of the United Kingdom who reigned from January to December 1936. Quite a few postboxes had this cipher on them, but as far as I am aware, Newport (IOW), SZ 4989 refers, and Shanklin were the only TEs which had that same cipher inscribed above their entrances.
