Three longs and one short or was it two longs and one short?

Do you remember the days of telephone party lines? What was your ring? Was it three longs and one short or was it two longs and one short? Do you remember when you talked to an operator to place your call? Do you remember when you had a phone that you cranked or the dial phones? Do you remember when the phone was put in to your home? Was your phone company a small independent firm?


Depending on our age whether we remember some of the above.

On November 19, 2009 at 1:30 p.m. Tom Cole will speak about "The coming of the telephone to Grey County" at the meeting of the Grey County Historical Society. The meeting will be held at Cooke's Presbyterian Church Hall (14 George Street, Markdale.)
