Radiotelegram

Radiogram, Openhym

Long before email and cellphones, people were able to communicate wirelessly over long distances. This radiotelegram was sent April 1, 1929 to Evelyn Openhym, AU1923, by her husband George. Evelyn was on the Cunard Line steamship, Berengaria. The message says “All fine today love.”

Interesting parts of the “radiogram” say that “this vessel is in telegraphic communication with all parts of the world throughout the voyage” and that a “Remington typewriter was used for typing this message.”
