Experimental Designs

Experimental telephoneThe success of Morse’s telegraph and the promising outlook in telephone technology inspired inventors of the day to experiment with other innovative designs. Inquiring minds devoted themselves to the new possibilities in the field of communications. The projects they undertook required skill, patience, a rich imagination, and hours of diligent work. Although many of the attempted designs were eventually abandoned in favour of other, more popular ones, their invention is a witness to the innovative and passionate spirit possessed by pioneering minds of the time.
