We had a party line where you dialled, in Morse code, for someone else. Our "number" was X (long, short, short, long). If you wanted someone not in your "group" you dialled a "long" (as far as I remember) to get the Exchange. We were out in the country so I have no idea how big a group would have been in town. We also lived near mudflats so were rowing (praam dinghy) and sailing (that dinghy and later a proper sailing dinghy) much as the stories set in east England. Almost a "Secret Water" situation.
