7th March - Telephone Patent Day 1876

Today is the day Alexander Graham Bell patented his new invention the Telephone , something we all now have and can not live without apparently , I do believe my daughters may have to be surgically removed if shes on it much more!!!

Alexander Graham Bell is commonly credited as the inventor of the first practical telephone. The classic story of his crying out "Watson, come here! I want to see you!" is a well known part of American history.[ Bell was the first to obtain a patent, in 1876, for an "apparatus for transmitting vocal or other sounds telegraphically", after experimenting with many primitive sound transmitters and receivers. Bell was also an astute and articulate business man with influential and wealthy friends. many believe he stole the invention from Alisha Grey who also devised a tone telegraph of this kind about the same time but Bell beat Grey to the Patent!!
