Video: Early fax machine technology, in 1937.

What a crazy video. A news reporter needs to send a photo of an aeroplane taking off from the top of a moving car, so he sends it over the telephone lines using Telephotography.

Skip to around 2:30 for the demonstration of telephotography, but the first couple of minutes is also pretty amusing for the crazy 1930’s news reporters.
