History of the Area code and Exchange Code(s)
The North American area code of 213 is the California area code and this represents one of the California’s original three codes areas. This code of 213 was created in the year 1947 ion the month of October. This code comprises of all the southern California and it generally represents its long associations with Los Angeles. During the past recent years, the area code of 213 has been subdivided into number of times but it is being surrounded by the 323 area code. This area code also includes downtown Los Angeles areas and its immediate environs.
In 1947, the states and the provinces use to have a single area code, and later three digit codes were assigned where 0 is used as the middle number like 203 for Connecticut. This was practiced during few years after it was started and there were 86 area codes at that time. later all the states and the provinces were distributed with the more than one area code and with the three digit codes, this time, the middle number 1. For example, 213 and 916 are for various areas of the California. The first and the third digit of the three digit codes were assigned according the strength of population of a particular area. If a place has a high density of population, then the area code digit will be the lowest. There is a reason behind this “low number and high population” scheme is due to the fact that during past years there were rotary dials. So the lower numbers would result in “dial pulls.”
