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.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
