Trivia Question 2/21/13 – The Telephone Book

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.


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




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:
