We live in one of the first private houses in Melksham that had a telephone - number 45x ... H J White the Draper lived here, at "Hillside", and had his shop on the High Street. Pictures are a couple of pages from the 1911 telephone directory; with so few phones, we were part of a wide ranging "Devizes Area".
Do you know where "Hillside" is? It's not where the Well House Collection is housed - I don't think there was a phone at that building until later. We do have a whole load of directories and can often find nuggets and snapshots of information about a particular building going back a century or more.
