History: New York Telephone Co, Red Bank (1914)

New York Telephone Co advertised in the 9 Apr 1914 edition of The Matawan Journal. The ad encouraged businesses to acquire sufficient telephone service to make sure customers didn't receive a busy signal when they called. It was no different than keeping the store's front door open, the ad said. NY Tel's local commercial manager was W H Hall, 32 Monmouth Street, Red Bank, NJ. Notice the workmen loading barrels onto horse-drawn carts in the background and the switchboard and operator in the foreground.
