    Recording of 1935 Marconi Speech Released

    The Essex Record Office in the UK has released a sound recording that includes the second part of a speech by wireless pioneer Guglielmo Marconi, delivered at the unveiling of the Fisk Memorial at Wahroonga, Sydney, Australia.

    In the speech, Marconi forecast the impact that wireless communication will have on ship navigation and on the world economy in general. “Without long-distance communications, no country can make much headway,” he asserted.

    The Fisk Memorial commemorated the first direct wireless message sent from the UK to Australia in 1918.
