Hello, Baked Beans? This is Hamburger.

January 7, 1927

The first transatlantic telephone call is made from a caller in New York to London. On March 7, 1926, The Bridgeport Telegram reports that “New York and London held their first telephone conversation today, the fiftieth anniversary of the day Alexander Graham Bell procured the original patent for the instrument.” The transatlantic call is also the first time two news bureaus, the Associated Press and Reuters, transmit a story across the ocean through the telephone.
