WA3WSJ's Telegraph Book Pictures
The pictures shown on this page were taken by WA3WSJ
for my book about the origin of the
electro magnetic telegraph in the United States.
These are only a few of the pictures that I have compiled over the past
two years. The story behind the development of the telegraph is very interesting
to any amateur radio operator who uses Morse Code. The milieu surrounding
the development of the telegraph rivals any soap on television today!
It's amazing how the economic,
social, political and military events of the
world molded the model for the telegraph. I hope you
enjoy the pictures as much as I have enjoyed
the research to date.
