Commerce, Georgia was FEderal. Wauchula, Florida was PRospect. Bowling Green, Fl. was FRontier. Zolfo Springs, Fl. (added a bit later) was ROdeo. Lakeland, Fl. was MUtual.
My drug store uses the same phone number that was awarded it when Athens received dial service in April, 1954.
I had my land line shut off a few years ago. We, too, had used the same number, LIberty 3-5089, since 1954... 50+ years was long enough.
Wholeheartedly, Ort. Carlton in 20601-land.
