Telegraph Office Moves To Emergency By Trailer
TRAILER telegraph offices that can be rushed to the scene of major news events for use by newspapermen and the general public have been developed by the Western Union Telegraph Co. The mobile offices can operate at any point where wire facilities are, or can be made available.
The trailer interiors provide writing desks for customers, a counter, and telegraphic equipment for both automatic and Morse operations.
To attract attention the trailers are painted with an aluminum roof and blue bodies. The words—”Mobile Telegraph Office” and “Send Your Telegrams Here”—are painted in large yellow letters.
