Walking FingersLast week we had a Trivia Question about telephones and I thought I’d continue along that stream this week as we say Happy Birthday to the Telephone Book.

QUESTION:

Born on February 21st in New Haven Connecticut, how old is the Telephone Book?

ANSWER:

135

EXPLANATION:

The first telephone directory, consisting of a single piece of cardboard, listing 50 businesses in New Haven, Connecticut that had a telephone was issued on February 21, 1878.   Making the Telephone Book 135 years old.

Here’s a photo of it:
