A Brief History of Communications for the City of Riverside, California
We believe that in order to fully understand the present and prepare for the future we must know our past
The area that was to become the City of Riverside was originally located within the boundaries of the County of San Diego. This was way back in the year 1850. Then in 1851, the future city found itself within the boundaries of the county of Los Angeles. Then in 1853, the County of San Bernardino was formed, which included the land of the future City of Riverside.
In 1883 on October the 11th, the City of Riverside was incorporated and on May 2nd, 1893, the County of Riverside was formed, making the City of Riverside its county seat.
The first telephone and telegraph lines were installed beginning on March the 19th 1888 by the Sunset Telephone and Telegraph Company. This company was given the right to erect and maintain a telephone network throughout the city of Riverside proper and some surrounding unincorporated communities.
On April 22, 1888, it was reported that the Riverside Electric Light Company allegedly laid a new power line a little too close to an existing telephone company wire. When the current was turned on, an arc of electricity jumped onto the telephone company wire. This caused extensive damage to the telephone company exchange equipment. It was reported that Mr. John A Lawrence of the phone company was not happy.
On April 9th, 1895, the Riverside Home Telephone and Telegraph Company was granted a 25-year lease to operate in the city of Riverside.
Circa 1905, the Riverside Sunset Telephone company was absorbed by the Riverside Home Telephone Company.
In 1916, the Railroad Commission got involved in a dispute between the Riverside Home Telephone Company and the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company. The commission authorized a PT&T to purchase the Riverside Home Telephone Company. It also declared that the PT&T must provide a first-class telephone service for all automatic subscribers in the Riverside exchange and that it must be the same quality of service rendered to the manual subscribers.
This sale was a good thing. You see, both of these competing phone companies installed and maintained their own networks and Central Offices. However, the problem was that they were not connected to each other and they both used a different company for long distance and those two long-distance companies did not connect to each other either.
If you think your 21st-century phone service could be better than it is, hold on....
So, if you wanted to call your Aunt Fanny who lived over on Victoria Avenue and you lived downtown on Market Street and your auntie was a Riverside Home Telephone and Telegraph customer but you had Pacific Telephone and Telegraph, you had a big problem. Smoke signals or jumping on your horse for a face to face was the only solution to have a conversation. Of course, you could use Western Union...Nah!
So, much to the delight of the fine people of Riverside, on November the 6th 1916, the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company acquired the Riverside Home Telephone and Telegraph network, lock, stock and phone pole. They subsequently combined the two networks and all was fine with the world, at least in Riverside.
On September 26th, 1957, the county entered into a contract with Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company for operation and maintenance of a teletype service to operate from the county sheriff's office in Riverside out to several local city agencies which included the City of Riverside. This system would have been the access forerunner of the CLETS Data Interchange Switcher, which gave access to the DMV, CNI and NCIC databases. The CLETS system came on-line 13 years later in 1970. That was a big deal...
Not too far into the future came the great equalizer-the Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company of Nevada, a subsidiary of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T) which would become the parent company for all of the Bell Systems, or baby Bells.
Eventually, Pacific Bell took over and while the branding has changed a few times over the years, it's still the same parent company: good 'ole AT&T.
In the early years, 1947 to be exact, the area code was 213. Then in 1951, everything south of Los Angeles to the Mexican Border and up to the North end of Mono County via the backside of the Sierra Nevada's was 714. Then in 1992, the Riverside area code was changed to 909. That lasted until July the 17th 2004 when the area code was finally changed to 951.
Thank you for visiting. I hope that you found this brief glimpse of history highlighting the role of telephone and radio communications for the City of Riverside interesting.
