Caption: Charles Bright (1832-1888). 1868 illustration of the British electrical engineer Charles Tilston Bright. Bright worked on submarine telegraph cables in the British Isles. He then supervised the laying of the first transatlantic telegraph cable in 1858 and many other deep-water telegraph cables in many overseas locations including the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and the Persian Gulf section of the telegraph line linking London and India. The acoustic telegraph known as Bright's Bells was one of the inventions and improvements he introduced into the working of the telegraph. Together with his brother he held many wide-ranging patents on telegraphy. He became the President of the Institution of Electrical Engineers in 1887, and was Liberal member of Parliament for Greenwich from 1865 to 1868.
