New phone books
A measure of the growth of Harlem and surrounding communities is the large increase in the number of telephone directories distributed this week to local subscribers.
Approximately 650 new directories are being delivered to homes and businesses, according to J.M. Williams, manager for Southern Bell Telephone Co.
The new telephone directory has many new and changed listings and other helpful telephone information. It is easily distinguishable from the old green-covered book by its gray cover. Enough new directories have been printed to supply every subscriber and to allow for future telephone expansion.
