• Short Summary

    Trainees at a Bristol post office school see how telephone kiosks and overhead cables are erected.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Number Please!"

    Bristol, Avon.

    Various shots of students (some looking rather mature) at a post office school being shown how to erect a telephone kiosk. The men make notes as the kiosk takes shape.

    A group of men sit outside a classroom, being taught about telephone cables. They watch a cable being fed into the ground through a flexible cable guide. Men make holes in the ground for the cable poles and then we see several shots of the men working to attach the overhead cables and adjust them, while the trainees watch from the ground.
