Communication Device

For the theme "Communication Device", here's a photo of an old teletype machine! They were used for sending data. The man here is my dad who worked for Western Union for over 25 years. His main job was maintaining these machines--or more likely, their more recent versions. This one is found at the Cody Park Railroad Museum in North Platte, NE. For more information see this Wikipedia article.

  1. I have a functional Teletype Model 35 that was given to me by a Navy radio ham and ex-repairman.

    They are amazing to watch when they operate...


Thanks for taking the time to tell me what you think!
