Black Rotary Phones

#2  DO YOU REMEMBER phones? I mean black Southern Bell phones with rotary dials? How about phone books, Yellow Pages and party lines? Remember when you dialed “Operator” to make a long-distance call, which was cheaper after 6:00 p.m.? How about phone numbers with names? Pennsylvania 6 5000? In the 40s, houses had one phone wired in place. If it rang and you were not there to answer it, too bad. There were no answering services (remember those?) no voice mail, no call waiting.
