Telephone-Operators - In the beginning if you wanted to get connected to anyone you needed a telephone operator. Slowly they were just relegated to long distance calls, then a few other odd situations, and now you really just don’t speak to telephone operators at all. In the past few years, some of the last remaining centers housing telephone operators have been closed down, the job is simply no longer necessary.
Women working as telephone operators; Their job consisted of connecting two phone lines together so the people could speak and this in turn meant that the operator could listen to the conversation too. The first dial telephone came out in 1924. In the 20's the phones were not portable and were a lot bulkier. Obviously, over the years phones have improved greatly, performance wise and mobility wise. This telephone service allowed people to talk to each other without being together.
Way before cellphones, the old San Luis Obispo telephone exchange. Throwback Thursday.

Switchboard operators-1950s. Back then our number began with the prefix "Turner" then had 5 didgets.
1952 switchboard operators... a couple of my aunts worked at switchboards...guess it could be very stressful. I worked one of these in the late 70's early 80's!
Switchboard Operator -Long before dial tones and Siri, a person who wanted to make a call had to start the conversation with “Operator can you connect me…” and the person on the other end of the line was a switchboard operator. For decades the iconic image of the operator was of a row of poufy-haired 1930s women physically putting calls through to exchanges
Telephone operators, 1952 by Seattle Municipal Archives, via Flickr You remember these, Andy Taylor would make a call and tell Sarah the operator to connect him to Goober.
In the 1800s, the Switchboard technology allowed operators to handle hundreds of call at once; they usually worked twelve hour shifts. The first switchboard operators were young boys, there known for being rude and abrasive. They were soon replaced by women. Women were trained to be more sensitive and understanding to the subscribers. They were not allowed to have conversations while they were on duty.
Switchboard Operator. The one at Dad's office gave me labels and toy food for my play kitchen.
