Another Victorian article - By Cable from Shore to Shore

A look at transatlantic cables from 1897, including pictures of the "telegraphic alphabet", punched tape messages, equipment used to lay cables and receive messages, etc. etc.

For some reason OCR on this one was a total sod, so please be extra vigilant for errors, there are undoubtedly a few I've missed. This will probably be the last article for a few days, I need to do something which doesn't involve staring at a screen for hours on end...
