If you don’t think privacy as we know it is dead, guess again. When I worked at the newspaper, the editorial department’s library had a few volumes of a strange directory called the criss cross.
These directories were bound volumes of a huge database of addresses and phone numbers. They were arranged by addresses, residential and business alphabetically.
I remember thinking these books are kind of neat.
Most folks never knew about them. Mostly cops, investigators and people who made their living being be nosey knew of their existence. In fact, those “Reverse Look Up” directories were their bibles.
