Can you fix the picture so I can read the numbers on the right side of the page. I have beat my brain to death trying to remember our home phone and my Dad's business number back then....Thanks if you can....

If you right click on the picture Wayne it will shrink and you can see the whole page. I never knew that my granddaddy Campbell, Clem, lived on Rice Street. It was before my time though.

It took only 12 pages to list every phone in town, a fact that reveals the relative newness and rarity of telephones, not necessarily a smaller population.

Neat...Darn, I would have never remembered the home number, but the "office number" was 65! I knew it was a 2 digit number, but was stumped!
