June’s question:

When telephone service was new, phones were rented in pairs, enabling customers to talk only with each other. That method was replaced by a central exchange system allowing incoming and outgoing connections using a cord with plugs on each end – one end for the person making the call and the other plugged into the person they were calling. What was this new system called?
