Frederick's Telegraph Keyboard
1898
Operators used this machine
to send messages across long distances.
Frederick Creed invented it
in 1898.
It was made by his business,
Creed and Company.

When an operator typed out a message
on the keys
holes were punched
in a roll of paper.
The paper tape
was put in another machine
which used electricity
to send the message along a wire.
