The following daguerreotypes are copyright (c) 1998 Mark Koenigsberg
and all rights are reserved.
The first daguerreotype shows a very early Morse register that was
made around 1850. A pointed stylus activated by an electromagnet made
impressions of dots and dashes on a paper tape. The paper tape was
moved by a weight-driven motor. The large weight can be seen
hanging under the table.

The second daguerreotype shows several telegraph instruments that were
made slightly later than the one shown in the first illustration.
The instrument on the left is a Morse register which made impressions of dots and dashes on the paper tape using a pointed stylus. The instrument on the right is a relay from the same period.
A telegraph key may be visible on the far left.
