She also told me she had a payphone in her home. I thought that ws strange. I didn't know they had payphones in private homes. She is looking to see if she still has it on the basement. ThanksMo
Quote from: LarryInMichigan on May 22, 2013, 08:03:32 PMMy mother always tells me that her grandmother in Chicago had a payphone in her apartment. That must have been in the 1940s and/or early 50s.Where I grew up in the Chicago suburbs, the local exchanges were 965, 966, and 967, but some phone numbers were listed with the exchange as "YOrktownn". I remember asking my mother why that was in the early 70s.Larry
