1876 __ Telephone concert - Telephone tested for music between Boston and New York, Centennial Fourth of July
‣ Comment : Two tests were made, on the 7th and the 9th [of July], with telephones placed in different rooms of the Equitable Building. On the second occasion the wire was grounded in New York and Bell played tunes on a parlour organ while a New York operator put his ear to his relay and wired that he could hear ‘elegantly’. Bell telegraphed to ask what he heard. He wired back “Yankee Doodle”. (Catherine MacKenzie)
