The Wire: Stories of Morse Code (2017)

 

The Morse Code Fraternity of WA commenced in 1996. It is made up of retired telegraphists, postmasters and postal clerks who worked to keep the lost language of Morse alive. In 2017, the Fraternity closed its doors for the final time. We were commissioned by the Wireless Hill Museum to capture and preserve the stories of these men before they are lost.
