3 Digit Dialing

with one comment

Sudbury adopts 10 digit dialing today. The scan above is from a Sudbury and area phone book circa 1989 when some places still had 3 digit dialing. Thanks to David Easton and his phone book collection for the scan. Look how far we’ve come in the last 22 years.

  1. I remember 5 digit dialing growing up. Three is impressive! Now of course, everyone is 10 digit. I think we have to blame cell phones for that one.
