Victoria telephone exchange..........1930s off Rochester Row

From a time when all calls had to go through a telephone exchange and then through an operator.You had to give the area that you were calling followed by 4 digits for example….
Pimlico 7432.My mum can remember her work phone number from the late 1950s, Mayfair 2302.
