Not in fact about telegraphy. Those fine young people at b3ta have been exercising their imaginations in depictions of the Victorian Internet. (via boingboing).

A most delightful link! My favorite is most certainly the Hampsterdance post with the phantascope and sheet music, though the urgent business proposal from Western Africa was pretty brilliant, too. :)

And, related to the Victorian Hamsterdance, this shows us how far animation's come in the last century.

And I always liked the "old old old skool" animations at Homagestar Runner.
