engineroom telegraph

Hello All.
ship (a) Three island Tramp built 1925, has navigation bridge wheelhouse & compass platform (monkey island) in the wheelhouse is a binnacle-wheel-engine room telegraph, with a docking telegraph on either wing of the flying bridge.

ship(b) Three island Tramp built in 1927, has open bridge ie: no wheelhouse, on the bridge is a binnacle & wheel no engine room telegraph, she also has a docking telegraph on either wing of the flying bridge.
my question is where is the engine room telegraph situated, and how would the o.o.w. or helmsman communicate with the engine room in an emergency.
Regards, Gretaston.
