This is an old revision of the document!
This instruction was 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.” Wait. “Hi, Mom!”
We distinguish now between a dial telephone and a cell phone. The cell phone is a phone. Won't Siri dial for me?
The dial interface is a body memory. The colonial prefixes - Union, Columbus, Hastings, Snelling, Marquette - rote learning from kindergarten. When all of Minneapolis was pink.
All dials work the same way.
