Telecar (Jan, 1952)


BALTIMORE messengers are pulling their telegrams out of thin air. The city where Sam Morse sent the first telegraphic message over 100 years ago now has six Telecars, roving station wagons each equipped with two-way radio and a Telefax printer. When a message arrives, the dispatcher radios the driver to speed to the address. Then he wraps the message around a cylinder in the transmitter and facsimile is received in car en route.
