Quote from: AMCer on May 20, 2013, 12:42:09 PMI remember my grandmother's metal dial telephone had the exchange name on it and when it was changed out (to a plastic dial (in the 70s)), she just had the numbers.I THINK it was "COlony 6" was the exchange name they were using for the 266 prefixes but I know that AMherst ANdrew COlfax COlony COngress ...were are all acceptable names.I'm wondering if anyone knows for sure what the Richmond/Henrico 266 exchange was 'officially' called in the 50s and 60s.
Quote from: poplar1 on May 20, 2013, 03:31:49 PMI almost always have trouble with the TEN site. Under COlony and Colony, I don't see Richmond, VA. Under Richmond, VA and Richmond, Va I don't see Colony or COlony. 26- is not even on the numerical list. I did see BOulevard under Richmond, Va. What am I doing wrong?
