Historical letters dating to 1700
By 1837, a British schoolteacher named Rowland Hill came up with the idea of postage stamps, and this gave birth to postal system.
Today we can even send letters by air or by sea within a few days, where without modern sorting and shipping techniques, it would have otherwise taken months. Postal Service has confirmed that their mail volume decreased by around twenty percent between 20.
His printing press used removable metal letters that could be rearranged to create blocks of text.
Before that, people had to pen texts by hand, which was an extremely laborious process.
It was known as Morse code and consisted of a series of coded dots and dashes that corresponded with the alphabet.
After patenting his invention, telegrams soon became quite popular as a way of delivering short amounts of information quickly and across long distances.
More importantly, communicating over long distances is something that people once struggled with, but thanks to recent advances in technology, it is much easier for us today.
Where we once relied on smoke signals and even carrier pigeons, we have many more options now.
More importantly, he also developed a system of communicating through this machine.
Johannes Gutenberg’s first creation using his new press was a copy of the bible; an extremely famous version that is known as the After the telegraph was invented, others continued to experiment with electromagnets and their potential in telecommunication devices.
With so many active inventors sharing ideas and developing machines with overlapping concepts, there is some dispute as to the original inventor of the telephone.
During the 1800s, there was a rush among inventors to develop newer and better ways to allow long distance and mass communication.
Writing a letter is a form of communication that has persisted despite all of the high-speed technologies available today.
The telegraph became even more important when it was heavily used during the Second World War.
