In 1877, construction of the first regular telephone line from Boston to Somerville, Massachusettswas completed. By the end of 1880, there were 47,900 telephones in the United States. Thefollowing year telephone service between Boston and Providence had been established. Servicebetween New York and Chicago started in 1892, and between New York and Boston in 1894.
Transcontinental service by overhead wire was not inaugurated until 1915. The first switchboardwas set up in Boston in 1877. On January 17, 1882, Leroy Firman received the first patent for atelephone switchboard.
The first regular telephone exchange was established in New Haven in 1878. Early telephones wereleased in pairs to subscribers. The subscriber was required to put up his own line to connect withanother. In 1889, Almon B. Strowger a Kansas City undertaker, invented a switch that could connectone line to any of 100 lines by using relays and sliders. This switch became known as "TheStrowger Switch" and was still in use in some telephone offices well over 100 years later. AlmonStrowger was issued a patent on March 11, 1891 for the first automatic telephone exchange.
The first exchange using the Strowger switch was opened in La Porte, Indiana in 1892 and initiallysubscribers had a button on their telephone to produce the required number of pulses by tapping.
An associate of Strowgers' invented the rotary dial in 1896 which replaced the button. In 1943,Philadelphia was the last major area to give up dual service (rotary and button).
One hundred years ago this week, Geelong residents were the first in Australia able to direct dial atelephone call â€“ no operator assistance needed! This amazing leap in technology was due to theinstallation of the first automated telephone exchange in the Southern Hemisphere and the secondin the British Empire.
A few weeks after the launch, the Sydney Morning Herald reported on 23 July 1912, that â€œsomeof the subscribers have not yet mastered the new system of turning the discs round to secure thenumerical combination for each subscriber dialled; but those who are able to operate the automaticsystem appear to be well satisfied.â€•
When I look at the technology Telstraâ€™s networks support today it is hard to comprehend how farwe have come in 100 years. If an automated telephone call looked supernatural, what would thewriter think of the latest mobile handsets that make video calling possible, angry birds and wordswith friends are played by train commuters and where Google is a mere click away?
Australia has always been at the cutting edge of technology. From the first automated exchange in1912, to launching innovative network solutions like Top Hats to extending fixed broadbandcoverage and to launching Australiaâ€™s first commercial 4G LTE network in September last year,Telstra has been there not only keeping our customers connected, but offering new and innovativeways to stay in touch.
I worked for Telecom Australia Later known as Telstra from 1979 to 206. I worked on Step by Step,ARF Crossbar, ARF-C, AXE, System 12 & DMS during my years as a tech. It was a rewarding &enriching experience, while modern technology is amazing I still believe that the old electromechanical switches held a certain romance, they we living machines which generated a certainsmel fron the warm insulation & the oil & dag lubricants used. I have several photo’s of all
technologies & some wave files of Step by Step.
Geelong looks like the dustiest exchange in Australia, well, it was the first…… Remindsone of the good old days of the PMG which provided the Australian communications and with thelatest technologies plus made nice profits which also subsidised the Australian Post Office and if ithad been left to its own devices may well have provided the National Broadband Network in time tocelebrate these 100 years as part of its normal operational costs.
From the Coffin sets of the 1870s to the Princess phones of the 1960s and beyond, this bookexplores technology and history of the telephone. Detailed information helps identify a piece and willtake the guess work out of dating equipment. For those who are restoring a telephone and wouldlike to ensure its historical accuracy, this book will make it easy to match pieces correctly.
In their original form, you cannot use this telephone today as a regular home phone. There's no dialwith proper numbers because dialing was done by the crank on the right. For example, your phonenumber may be "one short and two longs". That's one short turn of the crank and two long turns onthe crank.
Actually, these magneto sets can be quite useful without their being modified. A pair (or more) makea topping intercom set-up. Place a couple of alkaline D cells in the battery compartment of eachinstrument and connect across a line. Either a pair of wires, or single conductor and ground. I'vetelephoned a half-mile on an uninsuated strand of fence wire with these sets. They are just the thingto set up between the kitchen, basement and garage. Such an intercom can save a good deal ofvocal strain.
Are you sick of the boring, white plastic intercoms you have around the house? Are you tired of allthe buttons sticking underneath the pad or the boring beeping sounds? Perhaps you'd likesomething classier? Maybe you live in an older-style house with vintage furniture and needsomething more 'retro' to fit in with your look? Or perhaps you just want to hide the fact that whatyou have IS a set of intercoms?
Introducing the retrocom! Featuring smart, wood cases, steel crank-handles and charming,two-gong electric bells, these intercoms, which are built to mimic turn-of-the-century wall-mountedtelephones, add a touch of class, sophistocation and a certain 'wotsit' to your home! Simply lift thereciever, turn the handle and talk! No more squinting trying to look at numbers or trying to readinstructions off of a glary, digital screen! Enjoy simplicity and class with the new retrocoms! Buy aset today and get another set, free!
A history of the design of the telephone is presented from Art Deco years to novelty phones of the1980s in text and over 250 color photos. Memories will be awakened as you page through the bookto see the phones you grew up with. Old telephones are appearing in antique and collector shopsthroughout America; becoming one of the hottest new finds for colloecting or just as accent pieces
Meyer, Ralph, Old-Time Telephones! Design, History, and Restoration, 2nd Edition (now includesAE phones), Atglen, Pennsylvania: Schiffer Publishing Ltd., 2005. Old-Time Telephones traces thedevelopment of the telephone from Alexander Graham Bell to 1984, when the Bell Ssytem wasbroken up. Fundamental engineering principles, design concepts, and historical facts are interwovenin the fascinating and down-to-earth context of antqiue telephones.
Many books have been written about the many different manual and automatic systems usedthroughout the world. These works usually only describe the way a system works. In this publication,not only the differences in principles by which these systems function are distinguished, but also thebackground to the invention is given. This is done from the perspective of an unbiased internationalobserver. It takes advantage of the vast storehouse of knowledge held by the InternationalTelecommunication Union (ITU). Automatic switching was a typical product of the industrialrevolution. The inventors found many ways to accomplish the functions of a manual switchboard.
Inventors were prolific. Everything from moving balls in slots and miniature roller coaster carts to
robot operators were proposed. This is a good time to examine the successful inventions of thepast. Communication networks are now changing from being served by only circuit switches passingsignals for telephone and telex to many forms of store and forward switching serving multi-ratedigital signals. It is frequently said that as one looks forward one benefits from a review of history soas not to repeat the errors of the past. It is hoped that modern system designers will take time toexamine the past.

Like all stories of the time, it explained in detail the improvements; green cedar shakes, solid slabdoors and glass panel trim. Inside, green panel wall boards were accented with light green trimwhich was beautiful with the new chairs upholstered in bright red plastic. Operating the switchboardin this building was Elizabeth Cliett, chief operator since 1942, along with Inez Rose, Eldoree Eudyand Mae Knight.
Upgrades in 1955 allowed operators to control the lines so even on an eight-party line; you couldhear only your own calls. In 1956, Katy City Council voted to have new dial phones installed and in1958, Fort Bend Telephone opened a beautiful new Dial Office on A Street (now Avenue A). It was a32' x 60' modern building with 800 lines in service and room to add an additional 1600 lines in thefuture.Â
Fort Bend Telephone Company manager John Callender asked The Times to alert all readers toremain off the phone for about 10 minutes at 10 p.m. on April 12, while all lines were switched to dialservice. Long distance calls still depended on the services of operators who worked out of abeautiful new "toll room" in the building.
Modernizing service was a constant goal; the next year The Times covered a meeting at MimsRestaurant to discuss mobile radio telephone service. If enough subscribers were interested,complete phone service both local and long distance would be offered in private vehicles, whichhappened just three years later.
