Index - 1956

Remember the old Andy Griffith Show where the Sheriff would pick up the phone and say, "Sarah, get me Gomer down at the filling station" ?   (And operator Sarah was notorious for listening in on telephone calls after connecting the two parties.)  Bridgeport apparently had a "Sarah" until 1956.

When I was a kid, we only had to dial five digits. I'm not sure if it started off that way in '56.
