FeomTmePm ME WOWUI vi in Building to liouse New Yo new Telephone Apparatus DAY after day steel beams swing into place, rivets are driven home and buildings to house New York's new telephone apparatus climb toward completion. A great task of construction to enlarge the city's telephone system is under way. New buildings to house new equipment and new workers are only part of this task, but a large enough part to indicate the size of the project. They are only part, too, of the 98 of the system without which the other 2, the telephone instrument, cannot give service. Within the past 16 months, five new buildings and 17 additions to existing buildings have been completed, providing 12'4 acres of new working space. Other new or enlarged buildings are in course of construction. This year's building program calls for an expenditure of more than $6,000,000. Judge our task by the time it takes to erect one large fireproof building and you will have some idea of what it means to enlarge the city's telephone facilities, buildings, switchboards, cables and all the other apparatus to again give you Telephone service when and where you want it NEW YORK TELEPHONE COMPANY CONTINUES AT THE ENTIRE MAIN FLOOR Siegel-Cooper BUILDING Sixth Ave. at 19l4i Street Operated by THE ROSS STORES, INC.
