Bell/AT&T Promotional Footage
« on: August 02, 2021, 03:30:47 AM »
These clips are a telephone trip back in time and also worth watching for an historical glimpse at the vehicles, machines, cities and house decor.

Some of the services offered in the US were not available in the UK (‘BT Star Services’) until many years later. Cannot recall any card dialler telephones.
