Alexander Graham Bell receives patent for telephone

Alexander Graham Bell receives patent for telephone.

7 March, 1876

Alexander Graham Bell received the patent for the telephone on 7th March 1876. Coincidentally, he and Elisha Gray had applied for the patent together on 14th February 1876. A year later, Alexander Graham Bell went on to install the world’s first telephone service in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Elisha Gray was a great inventor in his own right and he had over 70 patents!

More than a century later, the US Congress recognised Antonio Meucci as the inventor of the telephone. An associate of Giuseppe Garibaldi, Antonio Meucci had submitted a patent caveat for the device.
