Caption: Marconi radio circuits, 19th-century artwork. The circuits are for a receiver and a transmitter. Italian physicist Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937) patented his radio system in Britain and established the Marconi's Wireless Telegraph Company in London in 1897. In 1899 he made the first transmission across the English Channel and, in 1901, the first trans-Atlantic transmission. In 1909 he won the Nobel Prize in Physics. He later developed short-wave radio and established a global radio telegraph network. Artwork from the 20th volume (second period of 1897) of the French popular science weekly 'La Science Illustree'.
