Scott that's a cute picture of your mother; the car, the auto court and her outfit. I would imagine that her outfit would've been considered very daring back then?

Gaylord I like that you mentioned those old business telephone numbers with the old exchange names. I learned some years ago that many phone numbers in my town of South Pasadena used to be "SYcamore 9-0825" or whatever. And just like how nowadays some people consider certain area codes to be prestigious (myself NOT included), back then people considered certain telephone exchanges to be prestigious. According to my friend's grandmother who was born in L.A. in the 1920s, a "DRexel" number was considered very upscale.

gsjansen I really like those then and nows. Very interesting.
