First telephone call is made 10th March 1876

-

On this day on the 10th March 1876 the first telephone call was made. The phone call was made by Alexander Graham Bell, the inventor of the phone. The call was made to his assistant, Thomas Watson, and the first words spoken on a telephone were, “Mr Watson, come here. I want to see you.”

Strangely, Bell did not have a telephone himself, seeing it as a distraction from his main studies. By the 1930’s the telephone had become common within the United Kingdom.
