Welcome to a site that is a “Tribute to Morse Telegraphy.” You’ll find navigation on the side menu or in the middle of the page. The side menu is a more complete navigation area than the middle of the page, so I’d focus there if I were you.
Main Page – This link will always bring you back to the front page of the site.
There are several sections devoted to information for collectors. They are: References, Topics for Collectors, Histories of the Key Makers and Topics for Advanced Collectors.
There are also several sections devoted to the history of the telegraph. Seeing as I’m not a collector, I focused on those.
Telegraph and Wireless Inventors – Here you can learn all about the people behind the invention from Morse’s patent in 1849 to the experiments of J.C. Bose. You can find an interesting section here called Heroes of the Telegraph where you can check out biographies of telegraphers.
History of the Code – Here you can learn not only about the codes, but how they were sent. You can also check out telegrams and radiograms and how they were coded. Pretty neat, huh?!
That’s just the tip of the iceberg on the history of these devices. You can also find a vast array of information on the keys of the telegraph machines. And better yet, those are photo galleries! My favorite gallery is the Old Photos of Telegraph Operators and Telegraph Offices where you can check out the section on the teenagers who worked in telegraph offices during WWII. Pretty interesting if you ask me, so make sure you check it out!
