“The Telephone Wife”.

I’m sure that there’s a song in this, somewhere, if only we had the power to return to 1925 to write the thing.
This advertisement spoke to the married couples of the United Kingdom, an appeal from the Telephone Development Association (TDA, of London), reminding people what the telephone was good for.
Not the least of the reasons for installing a ‘phone in the house to help reduce worries to insignificance, and rid her of “that womanly feeling of loneliness.”
