Tracing a Call

Would the technology for tracing a telephone call (pin-pointing the caller's location) be available in 1950, even if not commonly in use by the police?

Location: Vancouver, Canada (phone calls would be made within the city)
Terms googled: many combinations of telephone, trace/tracing, call, history, police, all of which return many hits for how to trace your current phone history; have skimmed several articles about the history of telephones in general and in the 1950s/1940s; any suggestions for google searches also welcomed
