Caption: Telegraphy receiving station, engraving from 1880. The message that is being received is being imprinted on to a paper strip. Electric telegraphy was developed in the mid-19th century. Information was transmitted by wire or radio waves, using a set of coded signals such as the Morse code. Early receivers employed a stylus controlled by an electromagnet. The stylus imprinted code onto a strip of paper in response to the signal being transmitted.
