Margaret Broadfoot and Ken Hooton

Interviewed by Trish Levido on 5th March 2008

Ken Hooton. Grandpa had a telephone and the number was 6, we weren’t around, that was earlier in piece, then it became 1006, then it became xm1006, now it’s 99691006, and my friend Jim Moore’s, he had 1007.

Trish Levido. Before we had landline telephones in our homes we used to have public telephone boxes and they were scattered all around the suburbs. People would go out and ring in the public telephone box. Where was yours?

Ken Hooton. I think there was one on Pat’s corner, but there would have been one down in Mosman Junction.
