Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone during the years of the Industrial Age in Europe and America. It was the day and age for new innovations and new devices that exploded in the field of manufacturing. While many of those instruments were suited for large companies and the wealthy, why not invent devices that everyone could use? This is the story of Alexander Graham Bell, of his telephone and of all the other inventions that sprung from his fruitful mind. Although he worked with the deaf, he never lived in a world of silence, and neither did his hearing-impaired family and friends.

And much more

Alexander Graham Bell was a precious young man, and it didn't dismay him that many others, who were older and more experienced than he, were scrambling to build the world's first telephone. There was a stampede to the patent office toward the latter half of the 19th Century. Patent attorneys were shown anything from rough pencil drawings to scribbled out explanations of how these devices were sure to work. Many, many of the applicants presented verbal ideas. Others, though, designed carefully engineered diagrams and prototypes. Only Alexander Graham Bell and his assistant, James Watson, had demonstrated it in front of influential scientists and notable statesmen at a University.
