Here is the latest photo prop added to our children's section. Bring
you camera.

Below is a very good explanation of last weeks Mystery photo. It was
sent in by one of our viewers.
It's a Vibroplex high speed manual morse telegraph key, used for
land-line American Morse and for international Morse radio
transmissions. There was a weighted, vibrating contact that you would
activate by right and left movements of the key. Pushing the key to the
sides would produce strings of dits or dahs and a good operator could
really fly with one. Most operators would buy and keep their own. Navy
radio operators had to qualify on them and needed to possess a speed-key
certificate before they could use them. The pre-teletype AP and UP
Morse operators would use them and I am sure lots of RR Oprs would have
had them, especially if they were in offices handling lots of message

The Depot is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 19 to 4.
