The Double Needle Telegraph by Cooke and Wheatstone (circa 1840) is an exceptional and historic telegraph. This predated Morse's 1844 telegraph by several years, and arrived soon after the original 5 needle telegraph of 1837/1838. This was the very first electrical telegraph in Belgium (1845-1846). 8
