Synopsis

Alexander Graham Bell and the Telephone The Invention That Changed Communication by Samuel Willard Crompton

In 1876, Alexander Graham Bell uttered the words that would inaugurate a new era in human communication: 'Mr. Watson, come here, I want to see you'. Bell was speaking through his new invention: the telephone. Though his name is the first to be associated with this now ubiquitous device, Bell was not working in a vacuum or entirely on his own. The second half of the 19th century was a time of great innovation, during which many people were experimenting with various designs for machines to enable human communication over great distances. Bell was simply the first to win a patent. Alexander Graham Bell and the Telephone tells the story of the man who invented the telephone, the people who helped him, and the changes that came about because of one of the greatest inventions of all time.
