Title: Richmond Virginia exchange names?
Post by: AMCer on May 19, 2013, 07:00:18 PM
Does anyone have an old Richmond, Virginia phone book that can tell me which name they used for 266-xxxx?   I seem to remember it being COlony but, I'm not sure.

I am pretty sure you are right.

In the early 1980s, I visited my great aunt in Richmond, and I asked her whether she remembered any of the exchange names.  She remembered quite a few of them, and I distinctly remember that COlony was one of them.
