THE AUSTRALIAN TELEGRAPH OFFICE
By Ron McMullen
|
A tribute to an era that made a significant contribution to Australia’s history
and the people who participated in it.

Australian Automorses

For them no more the Morse Code sound
Now their line has gone to ground
And as the shades of evening fall
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM

COLLECTOR: Ron McMullen.
I have been collecting Telegraph keys, instruments and associated items for many years, specialising in Australian keys, but include telegraph keys from many countries in my collection. Since this is the only available collection of Australian telegraph keys and telegraph history, it will be particularly useful for serious telegraph historians and collectors.

COPYRIGHT NOTICE:
Although all the pictures and text are copyrighted, you may use any of them for your own personal applications including public lectures and demonstrations. If you wish to use them in publications or websites or offer them for sale to the public in any form, you must contact Ron McMullen at (ron.mcm@hotmail.com).

    What a fine web site…had to find my type 3 Pendograph and it’s carry case
    all these years and I didn’t know it’s history.
