Back in the late '60's and early '70's, in Carbondale, IL (GTE), we|
had what was called "suburban" service as we were fifty (50) feet
outside the city limits. This was a ten (10) party line where each
line rang uniquely (no coded ringing.) When you dialed a toll call
(1+), an operator came on the line and asked for the number you were
calling from for billing purposes!
I think it was a SxS office.
