Flip up address book. The dial on the right moves to the letter you want. Press at the bottom and Voila. My grandparents had one i loved playing with it was our version of a DSI back in the 70s.! Lol
I had completely forgotten about this, thank you Pinterest. A fond childhood memory, we all flicked it up and down til we were told off.
Flip up address book. The dial on the right moves to the letter you want. You wrote the names and addresses on the alphabetical cards (always in pencil so you could change their phone numbers or addresses.
Flip up address book. The dial on the right moves to the letter you want. Press at the bottom et voila~! Someone I knew had one of these...either my grandmother, or my mother...can't remember exactly...
Flip up address book - I remember these, but not in our house. I thought they were mechanical marvels. But if you picked a letter near the end of the alphabet, lifting all the previous pages strained the physics and the whole device would hop like it had been startled, which generally startled the user.
Flip up address book. The dial on the right moves to the letter you want. Press at the bottom and it opens! I remember my Great Grandma and my Nana had one of these.

Flip up address book. The dial on the right moves to the letter you want. Press at the bottom and there was the letter you wanted and the name, address and/or phone number.
The 1st phone I remember having didn't even have a dial. When one picked up the receiver, an operator asked, "Number please?" My phone # was 1159J and my aunt's was 1036W. This was the early 1950s.

telephone booth - I can't remember the last time I saw a phone booth... a thing of the past... no cell phones then....
Phone booth - almost extinct now. It's darn hard to find a pay phone now in this age of everyone having a cell phone.
Phone booths in the 1960's... and all you needed was a nickel and then they raised it to a dime! Bell System installed its millionth pay telephone. by 1998 there were 2.6 million. 2015 probably none that are working due to cell phones.
Remember these? Way before cell phones you had to look for a phone booth to make a quick call!
Phone booth. Used to be one near school. Yes, kids this is what you used before cell phones.
I dont remember the last time I saw a pay phone let alone an actual phone booth
Phone booth, my kids ask me how did I survive without a cell phone. so funny!

Phone Etiquette, c1950s.
Telephone Etiquette, 1950S, Stuff, Funny, 1950 S, Vintage Ads, Phones, Talk
This may be hard to believe but there used to be such a thing as "Telephone Etiquette". It was during this same era that houses were being built with phone nooks. If you didn't have one you could buy a phone desk that had an attached chair and nook to keep all the necessary items (the phone, phone book, paper and pen) in one place. Imagine that!
Phone Etiquette. Very important in the Atomic Age. Especially when you have to call local Civil Defense. Invasions, Communists, Quilting Bees & lost atomic bombs found. Important stuff where good phone skills are essential.
"There used to be such a thing as Phone Etiquette." This is too funny - "and remember, don't talk on, and on and on!"
Instructions for children using the telephone, 1950s = give a child a dial phone today and see if they could figure out how to use it.

How to talk on the phone, Wow...has anyone really read this and think, "I have been doing this wrong the whole time!"
I think people need to remember not to yell next to the phone... And remember: Don't talk on and on and on. LOL

I remember this type of pay phone, only back then local calls were 10 cents. I would call Debbie from the Drug Store for a dime.
A Pay Phone...Before I left home in the evening, when I was a teenager, my Dad would always ask me if I had a dime in case I needed to call him to come and get me. : ) There is only one time I wish I had....I should have used that dime, but I didn't! : ( Thanks, Daddy
I remember this type of pay phone, only back then local calls were 10 cents! WE ALSO HAD A SMALLER, BUT NOT MUCH SMALLER VERSION OF THIS HANGING ION THE KITCHEN WALL. EVERYBODY USED IT! NO PRIVACY, AND CELL PHONES WERENT EVEN A THOUGHT YET!!!!!

80S, Color, Blue Rotary, Aqua Turquoise, Vintage Phone, Retro Phone, Telephone, Phones
Vintage Aqua Blue Rotary Phone. If your finger slipped, you have to start all over. Sometimes it wasn't worth making that call. You are also stuck in place, sitting on bed until call is done.
Why do people say "dial" when they are making a call? || Telephones used to look like this. Rather than taping a touchscreen keypad of numbers, or pushing buttons, we literally had to dial phone numbers using a rotary phone. Women learned to use the eraser end of a pencil to save their manicures!
Turquoise retro phone... I have to have this..... may be on a red shelf! Beautiful... vintage style!
Taking the phone off the hook when you didn't want to be disturbed. Our phones were always black because you only rented them from the phone company and they charged more for colors.

When I worked for Ma Bell I had one of these in turquoise and my very own phone number! My parents loved that my friends called on my phone instead of calling on theirs!
Member these… Yes. I do remember. but thinking.. I didn't like to see the 2 screws on the base.. so I definitely covered them up by inserting by own numerical phone number. So it was … by those days standers.. STYLING!!! And i even added a true 70's style smiley face .. CIRLE with 2 eye dots and a smile swipe :)

Pay Telephone back in the day You put in coins that were required and then dialed and whala lol talking on the telephone back in the day they all came with cords attached to them
Back in the day you could make a call for a nickel from one of these devices. The first public pay phone was installed in Hartford, CT in 1889. The one depicted here was used in the 1950's. The Bell System had installed a million pay phones by 1960! These "dinosaurs" are rarely, if ever, seen these days! Click the phone and then again for a nice song!
Rotary Pay Phone ~My mother always made sure I had a dime in my shoe when I went on a date in case "something went wrong" and I had to use one of these to get my daddy to come rescue me! (GW)
Old Rotary Pay Phone - Calls were 10 cents ~ i still have a dime taped in my Bible in case of emergency. lol

This was our cell phone when I was growing up. If we needed to call our parents or had car trouble we had to find a phone booth which our becoming obsolete. Pat Schwab
A rare sight, nowadays! For most of my childhood, it cost a dime to make a call--then the cost went up to 25 cents when I was a teenager. :)
a telephone booth You put the coins in the slot,dialed the phone number and talked......
Before cell phones - you always made sure you had a dime when you left home!
I liked how when the door squeezed closed the buf filled light came on.
Not many if these pay phones now with the invention of cell phones.
Here's our mobile phone.
