19th century telegraph operator


News of the Royal Buffalo Hunt was carried to the world by telegraph once the dispatch rider had galloped some sixty miles, changing horses, in all likelihood, at Medicine Creek. From there, the wires strung along the Union Pacific right-of-way sang all the way to New York City.

Instead of dots and dashes, today we use zeros and ones to transport video and audio and images and messages of every conceivable shape and form, the good, as well as the questionable. You're reading this sentence written on a computer in Nebraska, not that far from the Union Station the Grand Duke and his part departed from 150 years ago. It is stored on a server somewhere in North America and retrieved to your computer or tablet or phone via satellite or fiberoptic cable or wireless network. Vastly more capable than the telegraph, but essentially the same principle.
