Set in the pavement outside No.24 Lairgate, the town's telephone exchange, are two adjoining utility covers, bearing the legend 'POST-OFFICE-TELEPHONES' and 'CORPORATION TELEPHONES' respectively. The former Hull Corporation Telephones had provided telephony services in the town since 1905, moving its exchange to the current premises in 1924. Calls made to subscribers outside the licensed area were transferred to the former General Post Office. This may well explain the presence of the utility covers of the two undertakings.
