Happy birthday telephone …

It was 132 years ago today that the first phone call was made. Despite all the technical advances since, it still amazes me that you can speak to someone thousands of miles away in real time and hear their voice!

I wonder what Alexander Graham Bell would make of the fact that phones today are rated on how good they are as cameras 😉

  1. and today is 10 years since the British telephone network became entirely digital. Selby and Leigh-on-Sea where converted to System X and AXE10 on 11 March 1998.

    Shows the pace of change – the first electronic exchanges were only introduced in 1976; 22 years later they had all gone.
