Touch-tone push button telephones herald a new era in communications in 1964!
It's hard to believe that we used to turn a dial with our finger (or pencil) 7-times for one phone number and wait for it to tickety-tick return to its starting position before dialing each number within the phone number we were attempting to call. A lot of us today can't punch in the numbers fast enough to suit our liking. Even speed dial seems slow. Oh brother. LOL

The first person I recall having a push-button phone was my aunt. It was sometime around 1976.

My family had one dial phone in the house well into the 1990s. The phone company (Bell Canada) finally made us get rid of it.

My grandmother had the rotary dial phones for a long time until she passed on. For some reason she never liked the touch-tone phones.
