View Full Version : Time Telling Women

Here are priceless photographs of various women reading the time of day for telephone customers. The "time lady" was live in the 20s before time-of-day recording machines were invented. A few distinctive voices eventually emerged -- the fourth and final picture in this series shows Joanne Daniels who became the voice Californians heard when they called for the time.

What a great piece of nostalgia VO ...thanks.
Reminds me of the times of old switchboards and operators.
Working for a major telco, the building I worked for had a pseudo museum in the lobby with a lot of the old technology.
Great blast from the past!! :)
