BELL'S GALLOWS PHONE (Replica), 1875

Bell's Gallows Phone spurred Bell and Watson to produce their first Telephone Patent on March 7th 1876. They beat Elisha Grey by only a few hours. This has been contested by Grey, who was working on their liquid transmitter. Bell's device was a version of his multiple telegraph, from which this design is based.
