Communication in 1901

I love this map from Gizmodo. It shows just one telegraph company’s network in 1901, the year Queen Victoria died.

It shows Eastern Telegraph Co.’s network of undersea cables. We still use this sort of network. Just remember that this as for telegraph, not telephone, e-mail, fax, TV, etc.
Anyway, it’s neat to see this bit o’history.
