April A-Z Challenge, AT&T

AT&T is now a cell phone company, but in 1885 it was a subsidiary of the Bell Telephone Company, the American Telephone & Telegraph Company. The manufacturing department was the Bell Labs, and British electrical engineer Stanley S A Watkins worked for them from 1911 until 1948.

When he was retired and was living in London, he told me “I think the telephone is a good idea because it keeps people at home.” He wouldn’t say that these days when the first question on most cell phones is “Where are you?.”

  1. Sorry about the ad, nothing to do with me. There are lots of blogs about Stan Watkins and also on Facebook under Ron Hutchinson’s Vitaphone Project. Also on GoFundMe Stan Watkins. Happy reading.
