It would be a huge project for me to digitize the entire Mercer Country Bell Telephone Directory the cover of which is shown in the upper left of my graphic. However, the little and very classy town of Pennington, the town I visited so often to the Howe family during my years with the Kusers, left me with the unrequited desire to live there. I loved that town but unfortunately real estate in that area is reserved for the more affluent among us. In the meantime, I took the time to put together the pages  from the depression era N.J. Bell Telephone directory with the phone numbers of the residents during that time. I am posting this on Facebook, but the graphic will probably be illegible there due to the size limit on the size of graphics they allow. Enjoy!

Hi Tom: I saw the name of our family doctor in the Pennington telephone directory. Dr. William John Hamilton Abey. He had a big home on the right hand side of the street and he had his office in there too. Thanks for the memories. Regards
