Beechwood 4-5789


No, this isn’t the Marvelettes, singing that 1962 hit, but I hope it becomes an earworm for you today. ย ๐ŸŽถ ๐ŸŽผ ๐ŸŽง ๐ŸŽค These images are courtesy of 1930, when talking on the phone required two hands. Multi-tasking be darned!

Do any of you remember the days of five-digit phone numbers (or less), before the seven-digit system?

  1. You called during the week and in the evenings when it was cheap. Our first number was Liberty 66142. It was a party line,which was a bummer when you were 15 or 16. All of my important calls were in a dark wood phone booth at Art’s Drugs.
