    We probably can't imagine what a world connected by wire meant at the moment. If wars erupted for lack of clear and timely communication, this could be the remedy. If parts of
    the world were more remote and lagging behind, they could be brought into dialogue with the latest events, at speeds of up to 130 words a minute.

    Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 13.5 x 20.5 (inches)
