THIS ILLUSTRATION IS A REPRODUCTION OF AN ORIGINAL NEEDLE-POINT TAPESTRY. WOVEN INTO THE FABRIC OF THE NATION Daily, as on a magic loom, the countless activities of millions of people are woven together by telephone. Home is linked with home. Business to business. Community to community. City to city. Friends and places nearby or far away are within the reach of a hand. Without the telephone, time and space would rush between us and each would be so much alone. And so many things would not get done. BELL TELEPHONE SYSTEM LOCAL to serve the community. NATIONWIDE to serve the nation.
