Early X-ray Tube


An early medical X-ray tube (1905) by Cuthbert Andrew.This was photographed at the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum before it changed its name to the Museum of Global Communications. Among the exhibits were two working spark transmitters, one a replica of the Titanic radio room, as well as masses of submarine cable telegraph equipment. The collection still exists and a visit is recommended.
