Re: Telephones!


Interesting to think that private telephones were much less common in the Pulp era with local shops often having the only phone in the area' date=' and being willing to take messages for people ![/quote']


That's one of the images I always recall from old movies, the way someone would stroll into one of those wooden booths to take a call.


Incidentally, I lived in upstate New York in the nineties and the situation was just like that, except it applied to fax machines. The local drugstore in our middle-of-nowhere town took incoming faxes for people without you having to wait around for them to arrive. One of the many advantages of living where everybody knows your face.
