At first we had a party line, and I remember picking it up and hearing people talking. Not sure I was old enough to call anyone, I think I just wanted to hear if anyone was there. Our number from the early 40's until around 2001 was
Lombard 6-7579. Of course the phone company began listing it as 566-7579. I feel sorry for the family that got it after us as we had to change it because of con artists who were calling my mother. Changing the number didn't solve the problem however.
