What if you had no telephone? You would not be able to contact your family and friends. Thanks to Alexander Graham Bell for his clever invention. If it wasn't for him, we wouldn't be using telephones. If we didn't have it we would have to use birds that will carry messages around.
On March the 7th 1876 the first phone ever was invented. It looked different to the 2011 phone because the olden day phones don’t look flashy but the new phones look really flashy.
The olden day phone was made out of wood but the new phones are made out of different material. In the olden days the old telephone box's looked like a robot but it wasn't a telephone robot that moved around they were telephones that were stuck to the wall.
