Caption

Replica of Marconi's first transmitter used in his early experiments in Italy, 1894. Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937), an Italian physicist and inventor, sent the first radio signals across the Atlantic using a transmitter developed from this one. He later developed short-wave radio equipment, and established a worldwide radio telegraph network for the British government. In 1909 he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics. Acknowledgement to The Marconi Company Limited.
