“How to Make Friends by Telephone” c.1940s

“How to Make Friends by Telephone” c.1940s:

“When my grandparents did some housecleaning a few years ago, they offered me this instructional booklet. I estimate it to be from the 1940’s — it’s from an era when it was still proper to capitalize Telephone, much like the capitalization of Internet today.

“It has scribbles on some of the pages, probably from a relative of mine, maybe my mother when she was learning the etiquette of proper phone usage.”
