L'ultimo dei Telegrammi

Telegrammi addio. Con la foto del telegramma dei fratelli Wright che annuncia al padre il primo volo.

"The era of the telegram, an icon of communication dating back 150 years, came to a quiet end last week. Western Union says it delivered its final telegram on Friday".

"The fact that one final telegram was sent last Friday is a tribute not to the telegram's endurance, but to the glacial tediousness of extinction itself."

"What will we remember of the telegram? Probably the prose style the economic of telegraphy engendered."

Western Union Sends Its Last Telegram, Robert Siegel, National Public Radio, 2 febbraio 2006.
