Used to live on the Boulevard in the 1950's. I am trying to remember the telephone exchange..(which was the name of a writer who wrote a book about a dog) and then the number followed.

anyone left of that era???

Was the exchange still 835?

Would it be TEnnyson 5xxxx?

Actually it's Eureka time Steve.
Had a flash of memory this afternoon....!!

It was TERHUNE..something; Can't remember the numbers but I was really trying to remember the name and I am really pleased the old memory came through for me after over a week of straining...

Off topic..When we lived across the other side of the village in the little housing tract we had a flood. they had to open the dam ?Wanaque? My mother was visiting and she had just arrived. She said 'My goodness I never thought that when I came across the ocean in the Queen Mary that I would be going out of the house in a rowboat with a fireman.'

I think you have - had to be TErhune 5 - and the four last numbers of the phone number. Some of the other possibilities Ma Bell would recommend would have been:

TEmple
TErminal
TErrace
VErnon

Ahhh, flood stories - got a few good ones of my own. I was raised in the flood plain of the Ramapo in Oakland!

Small world time here, too (I arrived at this link while researching Les Paul!) I lived on Meyer Pl in Pompton Plains from 1959 to 1969. Just on the other side of the RR from The Village the floods just missed us. I think the dog story author was Alfred Payson Terhune who lived on Colfax Ave in Pompton Lakes???

I'm not 100% positive on the Terhune connection - are those the stories of Lad, Laddie - what was the dog's name again?

As for Les Paul - one of the things I always was annoyed with was my father selling his Gibson Les Paul guitar - something my mother bought for him for 50 bucks. Silverburst, with those '57 era humbuckers. It would never keep tune with the old strings on it, but for the brief time it did, it was the sweetest electric guitar around. And I remember the old, gold fabric covered tube amp that he got with it - it would hum for 5 minutes until the tubes warmed, and then it was the strongest little amp you ever heard. It would have been worth over 4000 bucks now.

I have a Fender stratocaster now, with a Vox re-issue amp, but it doesn't even come close.

The name of the dog park in Pompton Lakes/Oakland is SunnyBrook. It is on Colfax Avenue just up from Hamburg Turnpike.

The exchange was known as TEmple5, named after the telephone building on the Hamburg Turnpike in Pompton L:akes that housed the switch. The building was modeled to resemble a masonic temple.

Hi Peggy,

973's the area code! I hate to sound old again, but remember when we only had to dial those 7 digits? And remember hitting that "0" meant hearing some lady saying "Operator, number please".

Oh, and those lovely 'tick,tick,tick,ticks' you heard when you let your finger of the rotor? Touch tone? I still remember an aunt who hung onto her rotary-dial service long after everybody switch to tone/pulse.

Wonder if my old phone would still dial a number if I switched the switch over to 'pulse'.....

The exchange was Terhune (Albert Payson Terhune, author...lived at Sunnyside (?) on Route 202 in Oakland...now a park. Then the exchange was changed to Temple, and then to 835 which still exists. I lived on Ramapo Road from the 50's...my family moved from there about 7 years ago.

You are right Barbara. It was Terhune. Then 835 and 839 which is still the prefix.
