Feedback:

Ian Barton on What it was like to use public telephones in 1940s/1950s Britain

You Youngsters Don't Know What Telephones Were Like When I Were a LAD.

I remember phone boxes having Buttons A and B.

You had to insert your coins into the slot and press button A if someone answered that call.

If nobody answered you pressed button B and got your money back.

We used to visit local phone boxes and if you pressed button B you would sometimes get money back when people had forgotten to press it if their call wasn't connected.

Before the arrival of STD codes you would often have to ask the operator to connect to you a number outside your local area.
