C&P

In 1978, this building was owned by the Chesapeake & Potomac Telephone Company. I went to this building to apply and even took my physical (including blood test) here. I was hired and worked at other C&P buildings in the city, then in 1983 I had a job here on the 6th floor for three years supervising the folks who kept the plant records and assigned the cable pairs. While I was in this job, we changed from paper records and order processing to the first computerized records and processing. Smoking became prohibited in the main room because it would harm the CRTs. Heady times. The brick building to the right was still there. We enjoyed having the convention center (now completely replaced) across the street.
