C & P Telephone Call Center

By 1931 many homes and most businesses had telephone service. The Depression forced many subscribers to give up the convenience, but the Chesapeake and Potomac Telephone Company responded by hiring teams of solicitors to call existing customers to convince them of the benefits of maintaining service. An average of 3,623 calls were made daily by each team. (FROM: Mame and Marion Warren, Maryland Time Exposures, 1840-1940)
