Telecommunications Visions from the Past

Creator(s): North Sydney Museum

North Sydney, Nova Scotia, is situated on the north side of Sydney harbour. Since its founding in 1871, it has been a home port to the fishing fleets of the world, coal tramp streamers, warships, convoys and the Newfoundland ferries. The chief claim to fame of this small port town is that it served for 87 years as the main communication centre linking Europe and North America. The following is an extended snapshot of the Western Union office and North Sydney, Nova Scotia.
