Did you make phone calls when you were a youngster readers? I can count on one hand the number of calls I made on our landline at home in the Sixties and early Seventies!
As I recall, the phone just wasn't that important to young people, unlike today when mobile phones are the very basis of teenage life.
In fact our single home landline had a lock on it for which my parents had the only keys! Making phone calls was simply not encouraged! I am struggling to remember the number forty years on!
Looking back, I probably made more calls on pay phones than I did at home.
So readers, was the telephone important to you when you were young? What sort of phone did you have at home? Pictures and stories welcomed!
