EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures the stark contrast between old and new methods of communication. On the right, we see the former home of Samuel Morse, a brilliant inventor who revolutionized telecommunications with his electric telegraph and Morse code. It was within these walls that Morse transmitted the world's first telegraph message on May 24th, 1844. This historical landmark stands as a testament to the ingenuity and vision that shaped our modern means of connection. In striking juxtaposition, at the upper left corner of this image looms the iconic BT Tower - a symbol of technological advancement in communications. Originally built in 1965 as a transmitter for high-frequency radio waves and microwaves, it continues to serve as a vital hub for UK telecommunications today. Its towering presence represents progress and innovation in an ever-evolving digital age. The photograph beautifully encapsulates both past and present within its frame; two distinct eras united by their shared purpose: connecting people across vast distances. The blue plaque adorning Samuel Morse's former residence serves as a commemorative reminder of his groundbreaking contributions to human communication. As we gaze upon this image, we are reminded not only of how far we have come but also how essential it is to honor those pioneers whose brilliance paved the way for our interconnected world.
