My, how things have changed since 1967

Recommended Posts

Touch-Tone was still new to most people, and something like banking by phone, well, just revolutionary! Happily these hostesses at the Telephone Pavilion were there to explain and demonstrate these new marvels.

I have two thoughts.  It's endlessly interesting to me that rotary dial and then touch tone telephones needed explanation and demonstrations for the masses.  How did we ever move beyond those marvels?

Secondly, those two very attractive young women must be about 75 today.  Time waits for no one.

The same building feature a video phone.Tiny screen in b/w but they claimed I was talking to and seeing someone in New York City.

I remember thinking shades of the Jetson's on the horizon.
