#2 in a Series

In the 1960s through the 1990s local phone companies used to publish this giant book of phone Phone numbers every year, and give a copy to every household. People would save them and have big stacks of phone books in their basement or closet. Hotels would have the local phone book in every room. In addition to the phone books companies would publish books of local business listings called "yellow pages", and companies would pay money to have larger than standard ads, in fact some companies relied entirely on yellow page advertising for their business.
