Thomas Edison Wall Street Stock Market Ticker Tape Machine


Although Thomas Edison invented everything from the light bulb to the phonograph, his first big breakthrough was the stock ticker. Edison devised a machine that could tap into the telegraph system, and transmit current stock market readings instantly. The ticker was such a success, it was in use from its' birth in 1870 all the way up to the 1950s. When they were taken out of service, some were fitted with brass history plaques, and gifted to financial leaders. They are extremely rare today, and highly sought after by anyone interested in American history or the financial world. Ours is in fine condition, with original glass dome intact.
