Take a good look at your cell phone and be thankful for it.
For 26 years, this telephone tower served the people of Stockholm, Sweden. When the tower was decommissioned, it had about 5,000 lines connected to it. From 1913 to 1953, it stood as a landmark until it was destroyed by a fire. Luckily for us, Tekniska Museet decided to share their photographs of the fantastic old tower from back in its heyday.
When you look at it, there’s no denying its beauty, but thanks to today’s technology, it’s nearly impossible to imagine what something would look like in modern times.
It’s just SO big!
How did those wires even get there?
This job had to have been terrifying.

What an amazing structure! It’s so strange to think about a time when that was heavily relied on. I wonder what people from 100 years into the future will look back on from our time. They’ll probably laugh at our routers (because, c’mon, those are so confusing).
