1930'sTasman Flag Style PMG model telephone box which was one of the earliest models used in Australia, having a working history dating back to 1933. The box was originally painted in a red colouring with a black ragging effect on the inside or completely red apart from the roof trims.

The Tasman Flag model had its problems right from the start. Poor ventilation and proximity to the ground saw a greater risk of rotting and proved fatal to many units. The original design contained a hardwood floor with a large rounded wooden bead lining the edges providing the perfect environment for rising damp.  In some remote rural areas, and more commonly in QLD, pressure switches were fitted under the floor to reduce the running costs of the lights.

Whilst popular, care needs to be taken in preserving them from the elements and most have found their way indoors on display.
