Frequently Asked Questions

What was the telephone number in the old days?

In the days of old an ordinary telephone number had four digits, while large cities used five-digit numbers. To reach a person beyond city bounds by phone, you would normally have to tell the operator the name of the city and a number. A telephone call used to be pre-ordered, which took some waiting.

Where can I find old antique telephone numbers?

Dave Margulius has a wonderful Telephone Archive site showcasing antique telephones along with other antique telephone related information. Thanks to Dave for putting together this wonderful web site and sharing it with all of us. Check out his section on Number Cards.

When did they stop using old telephone exchange names?

Photo courtesy of 526663 and Pixabay.com. In 1958, due to increased consumer demand for individual telephone numbers, the telephone company began phasing out old exchange names for all numeric telephone numbers or "All Number Calling" (pretty much gone by 1963).

Are there any telephones from the 1960s on eBay?

The 1960s phone selection on eBay includes multi-line button phones, rotary dial, and button Princess phones, and Trimline rotary and button phones. If you're looking for something different, pick up one of the Ericofon telephones with the rotary dial built into the bottom of the handset.
