Failed attempt to lay a telegraph cable across the Atlantic...



Item # 636174

August 10, 1865

THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER, Aug. 10, 1865 

* Atlantic cable failure
* SS Great Eastern


The front page features a nice map headed: "THE ATLANTIC CABLE. Point At Which It Ceased Working." There are first column heads: "LOST ! " "The Insulation of the Atlantic Cable!" "Seven Hundred Miles of Ware Laid!" "Loss of 'Conductivity' on the 29th of July!" "Discovery of the Leak!" and more. This reports on the failed attempt to lay a telegraph cable across the Atlantic Ocean, to be more successful in a few more years. Content relating to the end of the Civil War as well.
Eight pages, creasing at the folds, generally nice.
