Patti McGee, the 1965 Woman's first National Skateboard Champion, stars in an ad for the telephone company. Back then, there was only one, so they just told you to “call the telephone office or ask the telephone man.” And each house only had one phone, and it was attached to the wall. I do believe they’ve exaggerated the size of the average house in this TV commercial, but otherwise its a glimpse back into the strange world we had before touch tones, wireless phones, cell phones, and multiple phone companies. This was linked in a reddit thread about female skateboarders of the 1970s, although Patti McGee preceded them.
