It Happened On #12

History has been pretty boring lately. Today’s no exception but here’s today’s edition nonetheless

It happened on October 9 1876…Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Watson made their longest phone call. It was two miles

Also on October 9 1936, the first generator at Boulder Dam began transmitting electricity to LA. In 1947, the name of the dam was changed to Hoover Dam

Boring but essential. Can you picture life without a phone? Imagine all the pigeons!
