From Telautograph to I Pad 123 years



Take a look at the
 first 123 years before.
My Dad was very much
a part of Telautograph.
I can remember all the info
he pumped into my
little head at 6 years old.





From Telautograph
to Apple iPad:
The Tablet PC's
First 123 Years 


Need to Know:::
The telautograph, a precursor to the modern Fax machine,
transmits electrical impulses recorded by  Potentiometers
at the sending station to service machanisims,
at the receiving station a drawing or signature made by the sender.
can get to anywhere in 1900's..It was the first such device
to transmit drawings to a stationary sheet of paper;
previous inventions in Europe had used rotating drums
to make such transmissions.

The telautograph's invention is attributed to Elisha Gray.
He patented it on July 31, 1888. Gray's patent stated that
the telautograph will allow one to transmit his own
handwriting to a distant point . LIKE A FAX MACHINE.








My Dad was the
first to over see all
 installations in Texas.

With this invention
you can sit down
in your office ,
take a pencil in your hand,
write a message to me,
and as your pencil moves,

a pencil here in the laboratory moves simultaneously,
and forms the same letters and words in the same way.
You write in NYC and it is instantly reproduced here
in Chicago fac-simile. You may write in any language,
use a code or cipher, no matter, a fac-simile is produced here.
Yes in 1940's you could do this and it was great for Radio.
Used during the War.




development, starting with
Elisha Gray, whose 1888
"Telautograph"


This was constantly
changing I quess this
as about late 1940




Dad use to take me to work with him when he visited the
Rice Hotel in Houston. Everyone knew him.
I got lot's of attention from all the Ladies. It was Fun.


Mercy Me!!
I am Old, I remember
using a crank phone.
It was only Ma Bell then.
I bet alot of people never
 knew about Telautograph.
