1948 Jackson Telephone Directory

Here is a 1948 Southern Bell Telephone & Telegraph Company listing of persons and businesses in Jackson, Breathitt County, pages 14-17. Notice that the seven-digit numbering system of today was still a thing of the future then. Telephone users simply picked up their telephones and told the operator who they were trying to reach. Phone numbers, at that time, consisted of four or five characters, usually numbers (ex: 185) and/or numbers followed by a dash and letter of the alphabet (ex: 216-W).
