The first phone call

On this date in 1928 the first phone call from Vancouver to England was placed. I think it went something like this…

VANCOUVER: “Hello England, is that you? This is Vancouver calling.”

ENGLAND: “Jolly good, pip pip!”

VANCOUVER: “Could you please send us more old people? We are building a whole city of them over on the island.”
