This advertisement for the Texas Telephone Company appeared in newspapers across the state before the days of Political Correctness! Can you just imagine anyone getting away with calling any of us “Maiden Ladies” as if it was a plague? LOL
The copy right date on the ad is actually 1934, and it ran in papers across Texas in 1936. We are very fortunate to live in the 21st Century, ladies!!
Be sure to read the “fine print” at the bottom of the ad. Do I detect the threat of spinsterhood for those young women without a phone?
