century carrying

York and Philadelphia in 1756. Travel time was reduced on this later run from three days to two in 1766 with an improved coach called the ''Flying Machine''. The first mail coaches appeared in the later 18th century carrying passengers and the mails, replacing the earlier post riders on the main roads. Coachmen carried letters, packages and money, often transacting business or delivering messages for their customers. By 1829 Boston was the hub of 77 stagecoach lines; by 1832 there were 106. Originally there were only 86 codes (Original area codes), with the biggest population areas getting the numbers that took the shortest time to dial on rotary telephones. Area Code History. Accessed January 4, 2009. "The rationale for this 'low number high population' scheme was based on the fact that phones had rotary dials in those days. Lower numbers resulted in shorter 'dial pulls' so it was reasoned that the regions with the most people in them should require the least 'work' to call." The digit 0 represented 10 clicks. Thus, five largest cities based on 1950 US Census population: New York City was given 212, Chicago 312, Philadelphia 215, Los Angeles 213, Detroit 313; while four areas received the then-maximum number of 21 clicks: South Dakota (605), North Carolina (704), South Carolina (803), and the Maritime Provinces of Canada (902). Additionally, in the original plan a middle digit of '''0''' indicated that the area code covered an entire state province, while area codes with a middle digit of '''1''' were assigned to jurisdictions that were divided into multiple area codes.

Philadelphia

'''Philadelphia''' (

In 1682, William Penn founded the city to serve as capital of the Pennsylvania Colony (Province of Pennsylvania). During the American Revolution, Philadelphia played an instrumental role as a meeting place for the Founding Fathers of the United States, who signed the Declaration of Independence (United States Declaration of Independence) in 1776 and the Constitution (United States Constitution) in 1787. Philadelphia was one of the nation's capitals (List of capitals in the United States) during the Revolutionary War (American Revolutionary War), and the city served as the temporary U.S. capital while Washington, D.C., was under construction. During the 19th century, Philadelphia became a major industrial center and railroad hub that grew from an influx of European immigrants. It became a prime destination for African Americans during the Great Migration (Great Migration (African American)) and surpassed two million occupants by 1950. Following numerous civil rights protests and riots (race riots), the city experienced decades of heavy crime and neared bankruptcy by the 1980s. Revitalization began in the 1990s with gentrification turning around many neighbors and reversing its decades-long trend of population loss.

The city is the center of economic activity in Pennsylvania, and is home to the Philadelphia Stock Exchange and seven Fortune 1000 companies. It is also known for its arts and culture. The cheesesteak and soft pretzel (Pretzel) are emblematic of Philadelphia cuisine (Cuisine of Philadelphia), which is shaped by the city's ethnic mix. The city has more outdoor sculptures and murals than any other American city, Gateway to Public Art in Philadelphia, ''Fairmount Park Art Association''. and Philadelphia's Fairmount Park is the largest landscaped urban park in the world.
