Fortunately for us, Tekniska Museet chose to share the photos of the wonderful old tower from back in its prime time. When you take a look at it, there’s no denying its appeal, however thanks to today’s innovation, it’s almost difficult to picture exactly what telecommunications would be like in the past.
For 26 years, this telephone tower served the individuals of Stockholm, Sweden.
How did those wires even get there?
It’s just SO huge!
This task must have been scary.
From 1913 to 1953, it stood as a landmark up until it was damaged by a fire.
When the tower was decommissioned, it had about 5,000 lines linked to it.
What an incredible structure!
It’s so weird to think of a time when that was massively depended upon.
I wonder exactly what individuals from 100 years into the future will think when looking back to our time. They’ll most likely make fun of our routers (because, c’mon, those are so confusing). Just look at your cellular phone and be grateful for it.
