Hardly anyone remembers when Perryopolis phone numbers had
just one digit! This was before dial (not to mention touch-tone!) phones.
You cranked the phones generator to ring the operator, then you told
her the number (or, more likely, the name) of the person that you wanted to
call, and she plugged you in.
Elmer Matto writes: This was a brickyard along Layton Road in the vicinity of the site of the present day sewage disposal plant. Of course there was no Layton Road at that time. The plant was adjacent to the Washington Run RR tracks. This information comes from my wife, who grew up in Layton, and from others who grew up in Perry and who know some of the history.
