This Day In History: 1913-03-10
The New York Telephone Company is issuing an entirely new telephone book to its subscribers. A single book listing all north Jersey subscribers will replace the small local books and the large suburban one for out of town calls. The new book will be slightly larger than the old suburban book but will contain more names by being printed in a new three column setting. The book will list the town in alphabetical order and subscribers within each town also alphabetically. It will be issued three times a year in February, May and October.
