A 19th Century Telephone Network Covered Stockholm in Thousands of Phone Lines

In the late 19th century, shortly after the patent of the telephone, the race was on to connect everyone to the phone grid. However, due to technical limitations of the earliest phone lines, every telephone required its own physical line strung between a house or business to a phone exchange where the call was manually connected by a live operator. The somewhat quixotic result of so many individual lines was the construction of elaborate and unsightly towers that carried hundreds to thousands of phone lines through the air.

In Stockholm, Sweden, the central telephone exchange was the Telefontornet, a giant tower designed around 1890 that connected some 5,000 lines which sprawled in every direction across the city. Just by looking at historical photos it’s easy to recognize the absurdity and danger of the whole endeavor, especially during the winter months. Everything that could possibly go wrong did. From high winds to ice storms and fires, the network was extremely vulnerable to the elements. Luckily, phone networks evolved so rapidly that by 1913 the Telefontornet was completely decommissioned in favor of much simpler technology. The remaining shell stood as a landmark until it too caught fire in 1953 and was torn down.

"I have never been so disappointed, my faith in humans is being destroyed. American’s are joining ISIS? Innocent American’s are being killed, just for being born in the United States? Most Muslims are not bad, but ISIS isn’t helping an already damaged reputation. What did we ever do, other than be free?"
A very sad American citizen. (via magical-norway)

Women are being raped, kids are being beheaded, soldiers are dying to protect their country, an innocent man was recently beheaded. Mothers and fathers are losing their kids, kids who will never have a future like ours.
And yet all people seem to care about are celebrity nudes and things they…
