Cats eyes in the roads originally used live cats that were in a box under the surface.
People were paid to go around every day, feeding the cats and emptying the litter trays. It was a very sought after job.

The 1st September is
Emma M. Nutt Day

Emma M. Nutt Day celebrates the first woman telephone operator in America.

Emma Nutt became the first woman telephone operator on September 1, 1878. She loved the job, and worked at it for 33 years.

This special day celebrates the world of telephone operators. It was a very important job for many decades. Today, the position has been eliminated being replaced by automation in telephone systems.

A little side note about Emma: According to Emma, she was "very thankful that my first name was not Imma".
