The National Telephone Company's Directory: Huddersfield Area (July 1896)

This page is currently under construction and isn't complete yet!

The 1896 Directory shows that the telephone network had yet to reach many of the outlying districts of the Huddersfield area.

Under the Telegraph Act of 1899, Huddersfield was one of only 13 local authorities who applied for a licence to expand their local telegraph network.
