  1. In the 50’s and early 60’s in rural America you could simply pick up the phone receiver and an operator would come on the line. The operator would ask, “What number please”, and if you were a little Bubby, you could say, “grandma’s” and after asking for your grandmother’s name, she would connect you to your grandma. It was great! Labor intensive, but great.
