1912 ad: The one phone that gives secret service

. Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Use the automatic during the convention. Make the automatic telephone station at the Coliseum your headquarters. A reception room, booths and uniformed pages at your service on the main floor of the Annex. Let us facilitate your work -- and let us demonstrate to you the wonderful efficiency of the automatic telephone -- The ONE phone that gives secret service. Automatic telephone service is pulling the biggest popular vote in history! Local Chicago traffic has more than doubled, and long distance increased 80% since January 1, 1912. Because of its very low cost, its instantaneous connections, its secrecy, its splendid carrying powers, the Automatic is the only logical telephone. By all means, take advantage of the special convention service. Local calls 5 cents. Long distance calls at remarkably low rates. Illinois Telephone & Telegraph Co. (Successor to Illinois Tunnel Co., Telephone Department) 162 W. Monroe St. Commercial Dept. 33-111, Information 892, Long Distance Call (O) on the dial.
