Item - Original Antique Speaking Tube (Voicepipe) complete with mouthpiece, whistle and fittings. Speaking Tubes are an early form of communication and were used in many places including Houses, Bars, Cars, Boats, etc.... from our research we believe that this type of speaking tube would have most likely been used in either a home, bar or possibly even an omnibus. The tube would have been fitted to the wall and through a network of pipes the operator would have been able to pull the whistle from the mouthpiece and blow through which would have sounded the whistle at the other end allowing for communication between the two parties. As mentioned above we believe that this example would have been most likely used by the passengers on an Omnibus (or possibly Tram/Cab) at a time when the driver would have been sat apart in the open.
