Although we might think of fax machines as a relatively recent (if somewhat dated) technology, this episode uncovers the surprising history of the wireless fax machine. Host Tory Altman speaks with Hal Wallace, associate curator of the museum's electricity collection, about this 1930s device that used radio signals to transmit images.

The "Founding Fragments" video series gets up close and personal with historical treasures in the collection of the National Museum of American History. Subscribe to our channel to find out about future episodes, or learn more at http://americanhistory.si.edu/connect....
