Odd that the sign says "both phones", but doesn't show the phone numbers!?

I am more interested in the rather large roadster PU in the background.

What is it ???

Looks to be a Jeep Burger. I could be mistaken.

In the old days, people had party lines and an operator would make the connection. If you knew the name of the party or company you wanted you could ask the operator to connect you. It is possible there were two phone companies in that town and they had a phone connected to each one

Norman's explanation is probably spot on. Some years ago, when we were doing communication systems contracting and maintenance. One of our customers was in the middle of nowhere in a canyon behind the mountains outside the SF Bay area. A small private community of a couple hundred homes, half the homes had telephone service brought in from Livermore (nearly 30 miles to the South), while the other half had a cable run down from Concord (20 miles North). The business office in the center of the place had one phone line from each. You could sit on the edge of one desk, and put your feet on the other desk. However, a phone call from one to the other was a long distance toll call.

The other fascinating (?) thing about that place? The annual (yes, every year, for about a week only) tarantula migration.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Well Dallas if it is a Jeep it was transported back in time via a time machine because Jeeps weren't manufactured until 1940 in Butler PA

As for the ice truck phone number they were probably the only ice man in town and you just ask the operator to connect you to one of his numbers
