An unrecorded phone book for Waco, Texas, issued by the Texas Telephone Co. Founded in 1914 and headquartered in Waco, the Texas Telephone Company merged five smaller exchanges and served more than thirty cities and towns across Texas. The company was purchased by Southwestern Bell at the end of 1927. The volume provides an alphabetical directory of residences and businesses, with two leaves at the start of numbers arrived "Too Late to Classify." Each leaf has ads for local businesses. Likely used to death and discarded -- a rare survival from this important Texas company.
