Telephone Switchboard Operators - a vintage circa 1914 photo

Over 50 women telephone switchboard operators and their supervisors. During this period (circa 1914), only young women (not men) were hired for this type of work at a Salt Lake City, Utah company. This photo was scanned from an 8x10 glass negative contact print.
