1959 Devilaire

  1959 is the first year to have the new seven digit FIeldcrest telephone exchange.

Most numbers converted using same three digits for the last three digits of the new number. For in town dialing, we had to use only the last four digits of the number, but the live operator was no longer there every time you cranked the handle on the phone box. You had to know the number now, instead of just asking Mrs Ruby to find a person for you.
