Hey Dennis, I remember much the same thing happening in La Manz. Below is a photo I took in 1983. On the right is Trini and on the left is her friend, Eldamira, the "phone lady". They're standing outside the front of a palapa on the north side of Concha Molida, two blocks up from Maria Asuncion, which was where everyone had to make their calls back in the day (and then only for a couple of hours at dusk). You gave your number to Eldamira sitting at a table, behind her was a phone station mounted on the back wall. You sat around with everyone else swatting mosquitos and waiting to be called up when (and if!) she finally got your number through. And then everyone listened to your call! Yeah, and there was always heavy crackling on the line like Joanne describes. Thanks for posting David and dragging up these memories...
