The World’s First “Carphone”



On March 21, 1920, the Sandusky Register reported on an astonishing invention in which W. W. Macfarlane, traveling in a car (driven by a chauffeur), held a conversation with his wife back at the garage -500 yards down the road! The article is reprinted at Paleofuture. Link

Ah, but what was the first car phone which could dial direct? I remember car phones around 1980 where you still had to go through an operator.
