Origin and Background
Back in 1876, there were a few words spoken by Alexander Graham Bell to his assistant, which were later known as “electrical speech machine.” Although his assistant was sitting in the other room but the words travelled to him through resonance. Working on the same principal of electrical speech machine, Graham Bell invented unique equipment known as a telephone. It was the first ever telephone line which ran from New York to Philadelphia. It is believed to be month of March or April when the telephone was officially recognized.
