In 1951, Bell Telephone System, Dallas (Texas, US) published an interesting booklet "The Telephone and How We Use It" for teaching children how to make a call and Telephone 📞 etiquettes. Here are some images from this booklet. 👇

@avtansa it’s wonderful. I’d love to see a manual ‘how to write a Toot’ in this style. “Always write like the other person is in the room”. Still very true.

@avtansa There's one page missing: "If the caller is a telemarketer, scream "Piss off!" and slam the receiver down."
