how_to_use_a_dial_telephone

This is an old revision of the document!


Dial

It's worth remarking that this instruction is necessary - and in two colors. It designates a dial telephone rather than the candle-stick, operator-controlled telephone. Lift the receiver, flick the bracket a few times, wait for the operator, then say, clearly, “Union 9 8 2 2 1.”

We now distinguish between a dial telephone and a cell phone. Won't Siri dial for me?

The dial interface is a body memory. So are colonial prefixes: Union, Columbus, Hastings, Snelling, Marquette.

All dials work the same way.
