Cusco in wires

Credited with patenting the first telephone, Alexander Graham Bell also foresaw a broader network of interconnected wires. Just because it doesn’t exist yet, doesn’t mean you can’t imagine it.

From the article ‘Only Connect’ on Technics History:

…it is conceivable that cables of telephone wires could be laid underground, or suspended overhead, communicating by branch wires with private dwellings, country houses, shops, manufactories, etc., etc., uniting them through the main cable with a central office where the wires could be connected as desired, establishing direct communication between any two places in the city… Not only so, but I believe, in the future, wires will unite the head offices of the Telephone Company in different cities, and a man in one part of the country may communicate by word of mouth with another in a distant place.
