Before your iPhone could store all your contacts and before you could just go on Facebook and search the person's name in the search bar, the White Pages and thick phone books kept a record of everyone's phone numbers. However, now in a era where we try to go green as much as possible, thick books that use an excess amount of paper are obsolete and everything you need can be found online.

Carbon Copy, Melancholy Memories, Childhood Memories, Carbon Paper, Carbon Papier, Copy Machine, Memories Lane, The Originals, High Schools
Carbon paper - if you were handwriting or typing something and needed a copy you put carbon paper inbetween the 2 sheets. This is where the term "carbon copy" meaning "exact replica" came from. Now there are copy machines and scanners everywhere as well as NCR paper which stands for "No Carbon Required".
this is the carbon paper that made "carbon copies", which where the "cc:" in email came from:) To pass the typing class you had to be able to correct mistakes on the original and carbon copy....remember Paul?
Carbon papier carbon paper
