World’s Oldest Telephone Book

Share

Last year, Christie’s auctioned off the world’s oldest telephone book. It’s from 1878 and features both a residential directory and a “yellow pages.” It’s only 40 pages and doesn’t contain a single telephone number, just the names of those who have service.

Found via Boing Boing.  Video here.
