Missing steps Phone

Ours was BElmont5-9533 plus you could dial 69 then hand up and the phone would ring in and you could call the operator and have her "break in" to a busy number to tell them you wanted to call them

In the late 60's/70's our rural phone had 12 different rings for each home; ours was 'long, short, long'.

You could tell when other people listened in as the volume got lower so you have to use a sarcastic remark then listen as the clicks came in when the other people hung-up!

I was 1 month shy of turning 8 when that episode aired. Our number was GRanite 98428 until the next year when we moved after my dad passed. Funny I don't remember any of my subsequent childhood home numbers. Time and temperature was GRanite 48481 and sponsored by a local bank so you called Danny Dollar. That number still worked in my 40's as 474-8481.

Glad to see this thread having some nostalgic benefits. As I stated in the OP, for those that have Amazon Prime you can watch this episode online for free (well not free really, but included with prime membership).

May get a kick out of it like I did

Perry Mason is my 'go to' show every night, right after any episodes of 'The Andy Griffith Show', of course(!), and I'm always amazed that I can NEVER remember 'who done it', even though I just saw this SAME episode several weeks ago!

I also am always wondering why such a normally 'serious' show typically ends with someone making fun of our favorite detective, Mr Paul Drake. I guess it's because he always waltzes into each episode announcing to Ms Della Street, 'hello beautiful'...

I saw this on a Perry Mason website, where evidently someone else was overthinking the trailer too.

http://www.perrymasontvseries.com/wi...dePages/Show17

* * **Trailer Trouble.*However careful the crew were in gathering their Fairlanes, details of the trailer theft were implausible:

I doubt that a Jeep could pull Arlene's large trailer out of the woods but there are*contrary claims! Even so, any cops spotting Sackett on the road would have stopped him for the excessive (stolen) load.

Toaster, lamp & AirCond are seen in Arlene's trailer but Sackett didn't disconnect electrical service.

Since Sackett didn't stow anything, the interior would have been wrecked by the time he got to Ideal Trailer Mart.

Arlene would have had great difficulty getting her trailer into that wooded, sandy spot, even with her big Dodge*Royal Lancer, (Lic No MLJ 766, see "1957 Headlight Oddities" at*ep#3*Comments).
______________________

Maybe I should add to that site a continuity error, which you can see in my earlier screen shot of it being connected to the jeep. That's showing it being on concrete and not in the woods. Lol

We must be a bit older than most here, ours was two longs and a short. It was in the 50’s for me.

We used to make "prank calls". Remember: "Do you have Sir Walter Raleigh in a can?" "Please let him out"...LOL.

Mine was MOrris 4-2192. Of course it was a party line shared with an older woman who did not hesitate to tell you to get off the line so she could use it. A interesting side note was that when it was installed, late 50s or early 60s, it was the first underground cable system in Texas, and it was installed in a small town which had not had telephone service previously. The town's name: Telephone. We were written up periodically in Ripley's Believe it or Not. "Believe it or not, Telephone, Texas, has no telephones." Of course, after the phone system was installed, we lost that notoriety. Years previously, there had been a phone system, but it had been wiped out in an ice storm.

I'm assuming they had cigarette sponsors.

Yep! Back in those days they use to advertise Beer, Booze and Cigs on t.v. In fact they even sang about them.


I miss seeing hobo's on the trains.

Cigars? Cigarettes? Tiparillos?

Madison 4- 0301

Ya, my air date is prior to 1958 too!

Unfortunately those ads had a major influence on kids. See any Joe Camel ads lately? He became a more recognized icon to kids than Mickey Mouse. I for one am glad to see them gone.

I would recommend checking out Stobe the Hobo. his stuff is pretty entertaining as he takes you across the country hopping freight cars.
