Editor’s note: This is the 93rd of a series about growing up in Marysville during the late 1930s and the 1940s written by Bill Boyd. Each article is a snapshot of the people, businesses and activities during that era as seen through the eyes of a young boy.
Boyd was born in Marysville in 1932, graduated from Marysville High School in 1950, and lived the greater part of his life here.
It seems like every time I turn around, a new iPhone is coming out on the market. Each model, of course, is better than the previous one, and it does more things. I guess during my lifetime, there have been more improvements in telephones than just about anything else.
