2018: My Year of the Telegraph

A few years back I read this book and it was excellent – I highly recommend it. I’m reading a biography about Samuel F.B Morse now, and will read this book next:

What is really great is that I am one of us Telegraphers who are the legacy of Samuel F.B. Morse and the invention of the telegraph.

A very big part of this is that I work in a very historic building – the Phelan Building – which was re-built after the 1906 Earthquake, and which has the best vibe – you can’t help but feel history. Right across the street is the very historic Humboldt Bank Building. Its fantastic.

I can just hear the telegraph clicking and lacking in old San Francisco!
