Wednesday Ephemera: 1938 Ingram, Hunt & Mountain Home telephone directory

I came across this directory the other day, and I think it's wonderful. It's surprising how few entries there are for the little towns in West Kerr.  This was published around 1938 (from the look of the Martha Washington 1 1/2 cent stamp), well before Hill Country Telephone Cooperative started, which opened up this area for telephone service.

  1. I remember the Kerrville Greenhouses and Saenger Lumber. Those were good businesses to deal with. In those days, customer service really meant something. I don't see true customer service very much these days.


Please remember this is a rated "family" blog. Anything worse than a "PG" rated comment will not be posted. Grandmas and their grandkids read this, so please, be considerate.
