Telegraphists

These telegraphists using the Morse code system were photographed in the 1940s for a government-produced series called ‘Making New Zealand’. By the 1940s Morse code was only used in the smallest centres. Everywhere else telegram printing and coding machines were used. Women were increasingly employed to do the work.
