On July 14, someone somewhere in India will tap out what is being called the world’s last telegram. India’s state-owned telecom company, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited, has been holding out as other countries around the world retire their antiquated telegraph services. Now, after delaying the move for two years, the business operating what is considered to be the world’s last telegraph service is finally ready to pull the plug, saying telegrams are no longer commercially viable in the age of digital communications.
In my preservation class last semester we were talking very much about obsolete media, but more specifically about the machines and objects associated with that media. Will people in years to come be able to identify a telegraph, or even how it worked?
