How I miss the New Jersey Bell Telephone Company! Those were the years when you had a phone problem, instead of "all of our representatives are busy. Your call is very important to us...." we had the luxury of speaking IMMEDIATELY to a real live person, and IMMEDIATELY getting a truck out to solve our problem.
The above graphic is a treasure that reposes in my Local History Collection. Many if not most of the graphics on this blog take a substantial amount of tweaking and Photoshopping and re-sizing. I have seen quite a number of my graphics posted on Facebook and other social pages and with copyright issues involved, I am responsible for the content. I have been crediting the Duke University Library's R.C. Maxwell Collection, and any time anyone sends a graphic, they will also be credited as the source. Effective with this post, I will begin to "watermark" all of my blog entries as above, and as is the case with any and all historic material I post, the source will be clearly recognized and included in the graphic.
