Quote from: oliva7 on July 11, 2012, 01:40:56 PMIt occurred to me to finally pry off the cover in the center of my 202 and change the number to my own. In 1937 and still in 1978 when I was 5, all the Concord NH exchanges were 224, 5, or 8. When I moved this spring, I asked Fairpoint for a number in those exchanges and they obliged. I plan to print a blank and glue it over the original. Failing that I can type the numbers on a tan adhesive label and stick that on. But this is off the point. Just for curiosity's sake, how can I determine what letters went with 22x? My 1937 city directory (coincidence) is no help, as most numbers listed are one, two, and three digits, assuming you know do dial 4 and the correct number of zeroes. I will go out on a limb and suggest ABbot, a local name, but it could have been CAbot, or anything.
