Okay, so the "WO" is the first part of the phone number but what is WO short for? Wolf? Wool? Wonder?

I love those old phone numbers. I like to think I would've been on the Algonquin exchange if I'd been around back then and had a phone number.

Ken, the green leaves look mighty delicious this time of year...

our phone number was ch9 which was short for chappel 9. I always loved the sound of that. My neighbors was my4, but I can't remember what it was short for. Though her granddaughter & I spent a lot of time eavesdropping & commenting on her party line. Anyone remember party lines?

Just discovered your blog and spent 2 hours browsing your posts. New York and Grand Lake, Colorado are my favorite places in the world. We stay at a friends pre-war apartment off Bleeker 2 weeks each year and prowl the streets of the village. Wonderful posts.

Had a place on 13th Street number was LF3 4314, thought it was for Lafayete but was told it was for Left Foot...Huh? That was my reaction.

Hi Nice Blog .This phone time card is used to track the time and attendance of employees, and at the same time track labor activity against specific parts, jobs, and operations.
