As we continue...

Please note: While I don't mean to ' hog ' this Forum, I want to complete this Detroit " C " list while I'm able to this morning.

Well, that does it for the " DETROIT-C " listings contained in the files ( 3 x 5 cards )
SAL-UTE!

I do hope that some readers, researchers, collectors, or just the plain curious, can and will apply a small part of this in some way.

I've had an email from a notable New York City-based collector who has written that he owns " about seventy " of the labels ( Detroit ) that have been so-far listed.

That's one, but I'm happy with that.

Please remember that I did all of this long before the advent of " home computers "

Back in the late 1960's, I undertook the effort to obtain older telephone directories, and most cities were obliging ( some I took from hotels and motels too! )
However, by the 1970's ( I was still trying ) I was told that obtaining a Directory(s) would be so at my own cost ( if and when available )
Telephone books ( even from Gary, Indiana ) were expensive to ship out to Los Angeles, but I did what I could, and I still have about 30 Directories *

* I was very pleased ( not to mention surprised ) to find just how many labels existed in Jackson, Mississippi besides the imprints from the ACE family of labels ( Pink, Vin, Teen, etc )
My small copy of the Jackson ( Mississippi ) phone-book was passed to me by Johnny Vincent ( Imbruglio ) himself as was the Norfolk ( Virginia ) directory from Frank Guida*
(* I took the white pages book from the W-----k Hotel in Newport News ( Virginia )

Last, but not least, only PART of this information is from Telephone Directories.
They are / were only used to enhance and / or vefrify my research, usually to add additional addresses from labels and their owners that often moved around, as so many did out here.
