Demonstration of the wireless telephone

Demonstration of the wireless telephone, June 1920. In the 1920s, broadcasting was still in its infancy, with radio transmitters and receivers owned only by amateur enthusiasts. To demonstrate the potential and efficiency of the 'wireless telephone' as a means of broadcasting, Dame Nellie Melba, the Australian soprano shown here, gave a concert of operatic arias that was transmitted across Europe from Essex, England. People gathered at receiving stations were impressed by the clarity of tone. This portrait is from the Bain News Service, one of America's oldest news picture agencies, which holds images dating from the 1890s to the 1930s.


Telegraph receiver Featured Print

Telegraph receiver

Telegraph receiver. Historical artwork of a Breguet telegraph receiver. Messages arrived at the receiver in wires as a series of long and short electric pulses. Electromagnets converted the pulses into dashes and dots printed on ticker tape (running from the spool at top through the mechanism at centre). In Morse code, each letter and number is represented by a combination of dots and dashes. Electrical telegraphs were an important application of the newly-discovered electromagnetic force. The first practical telegraph was invented by Samuel Morse in 1837. Published in La Telegraphie Historique (History of Telegraphy) by Alexis Belloc in 1888.
