Living History
Author: ETFuller

A while back, John Springer, who is a regular contributor to The Trackside Photographer, phoned me and said that he knew of several retired railroaders who had worked at a time when telegraphy and morse code were still in use by the railroad. A few weeks before Christmas, we had the opportunity to record a conversation with three "old-timers" and listen to their stories. This is history—living history.

I've said it before...the time to capture history is now, the time to ask those questions is today. Thank you for preserving the stories.

Thank you for this link !  Very interesting and I learned a lot about the lost art of telegraphy.
