    frankly can't find where 3 digit numbers were used. I see 4 and 5 from the early 1900's.

    any time frame for this tag.

    Re: three digit phone numbers

    Awesome, thanks Doug.

    Just fyi, the darkend part of the pic has the first two initials and the last name of the person which probably helped in dialing.

    Re: three digit phone numbers

    In the 1940's, the population of my town in Oklahoma was around 18000. Our phone number was 928. The all night coffee shop was 18. I have a 1938 phone book with plenty of 2 didget numbers and some 4 didget. No prefixes.
