Caption: Met Office communications. Met Office worker converting a teleprinter message to Morse code that is being punched on to a tape. This tape, when passed through an automatic keying device, transmits the message in the form of Morse signals. The Met Office is the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service. A variety of communication methods have been used during its history. Teleprinters, mostly used in the mid-20th century, allowed typed messages to be sent and received by radio, but conversion to the systems using Morse code was still required.
