August  calendar

And it’s a letter from Alexander Graham Bell, written to Her Majesty Queen Victoria!

“I feel highly honoured by the gratification expressed by Her Majesty, and by her desire to possess a set of Telephones.”

Inventor, scientist, and engineer, Alexander Graham Bell invented and patented the first practical telephone in 1876 and, in 1878, gave an interactive demo of the workings of the telephone to Queen Victoria.
