Old Telephone Directory

Last weekend I ventured into one of our national libraries in town and there I found an old phone directory from 1978.   And right after opening it, I discovered a world of retro advertisements in the yellow pages.  I was happy to see it.  Here it is the directory:

I will be sharing in the future posts some of these retro ads I found.  Here are the first ones.  This graphic was in the first pages of the phonebook, a resume of the important phone numbers in the city, like police, hospital, etc.  

Then I worked a little bit on it by removing the numbers,
adding the titles in English and adding one lady on the phone that I found in another page of the same directory.  After the editing work, it looks like this

You can print it on card stock, write the numbers for your city and put it in the wall next to the table where you keep the phone.   I also imagine it as a nice cover for a phone address book or agenda.   Maybe I will do this project one of these days. 

If you would like to have the lady on the phone as a separated image, here she is:

Here there are two more retro graphics from the same phonebook, now for Liquor distributors.

Enjoy them & thank you for reading us,
