NEW BIG BOARD: Dewitt E. Wallace, president of the Old National bank, and Mrs. Margaret Jones, chief switchboard operator, look over the new switchboard which, starting tomorrow, will serve all of the more than 200 telephones in the bank’s eight Spokane branches. Said to be the largest semiautomatic dial system of its type in Spokane, the board makes it possible to reach any individual in any of the bank’s Spokane offices by dialing the main office number. Until now, each branch has had its own telephone number. The board was installed by Pacific Telephone company. Photo Archive/ The Spokesman-Review.
