Infographic: Celebrating First Telephone Call on March 10, 1876

On this day in 1876, 100 years after the Declaration of Independence, with patent number 174,465, the world was given the telephone and the first call was made.

Communication has come a long, long way. Thanks, Alexander Graham Bell, for the tinkering, dedication and imagination that led to the invention of the telephone. When you take a look back at the many tools we’ve used to convey a simple message like, “Mr. Watson, come here – I want to see you,” you can see the evolution of humanity.

It took us awhile to get going, but the dawn of modern communication – telecommunication – started with Alexander Graham Bell and the first telephone call. And for that we say, “thank you!”
