PHONE GIRLS USE SKATES (May, 1929)
PHONE GIRLS USE SKATES
OPERATORS in Los Angeles telephone exchanges go roller skating each night. They don’t have any boy friends along to pick them up when they fall, nor is their skating comprised of fancy turns and difficult tricks. Business is the primary cause of their donning skates.
After 10:30 p.m. phone calls become less frequent, and not many girls are on duty. Distances which used to keep the girls doing kangeroo jumps to plug in a call are now covered with ease.
