    1965: only rich people could afford two phones.

    2005: Quit looking at those retro style phones at the table, you need to bluetooth connect them to your monitors.

    Our phone was on the wall.

    @Empress, NO. I had at least 3 phones (all extensions of the same line) throughout the 60s and when the kids became teens (in the 70s) I got a second line for just myself (that my 4 kids were not allowed to use) so I had a line in and out all the time for both personal and business.


    I moonlighted extra drafting work in addition to my regular design job.

    Back in the day when telephone signals came through a wire in the wall and TV signals came over the air.

    Today’s kids are as confused by a dial phone as an analogue clock, and are rapidly forgetting how to accept, let alone deal with, the real world outside their phones and/or personal computers (which also didn’t exist in ’65).

    Also, if you use phones with charging bases, when the power goes out—no phone!!
    I always have a thrift store “old fashioned” spare.

    Jenny 867-5309 and since it was LA the area code was probably 213.
