Synopsis :

Mr. Wilson here gives us a comprehensive history of the shutter, semaphore and other kinds of visual mechanical telegraphs developed in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. He takes the reader from Halifax in Canada to Hobart in Tasmania, covering every continent and describing every system known to have operated for any length of time and over an appreciable distance.
