Brisbane Central Telephone Exchange

Friday flashback to vintage Brisbane of 1910 and an image of female telephonists being closely supervised at the Brisbane Central Telephone exchange.

The Brisbane city telephone exchange was located in Elizabeth Street.

Did you know that Professor Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, made a visit to the Brisbane central exchange whilst the installation of a new Brisbane Telephone Exchange was in progress?
