I didn't know that 7 digit calling was still a thing. [tongue_smile]

Bailey, our first phone number was just one digit, 9.

No telling what numbers we will have in another 60 years.

I remember our first exchange - FAirfax 5. My great aunt, Alabama, ran the switchboard in Wilton, Arkansas, where my mom's family was. I kick myself for not having the sense to salvage all that great old equipment when she died in the early 60s.

Our Santa Fe Old School Museum has a nice collection of old phones, even one wall mounted with a hand crank. We also have candlestick phones.....I couldn't believe how heavy they are!
