In 1875, on the top floor of this building at 109 Court Street in Boston, Massachusetts, Professor Alexander Graham Bell invented and experimented. It was also here that he first succeeded in transmitting speech by electricity — thereby making him the father of the telephone. (The photo below of his laboratory — located above the New Palace Theatre — was taken sometime between 1915 and 1925.)
