"Postal Telegraph-Cable Company
Connecting With The Commercial Cable Company
To All Parts of The World"
Remarkable 1896 Calendar illustrating the Postal Telegraph network of land lines across the United States and Canada in connection with submarine cables of the Commercial Cable Company landing at Hazel Hill, Nova Scotia and Coney Island, New York.
Look carefully and you can see the Commercial Cable Company Logo, the Postal Telegraph-Cable Company Logo and the two year old Postal Telegraph-Cable Company building located at 253 Broadway in downtown New York City.
Wonder what these kids are up to?
