via Here’s How Mobile Phones Worked in 1959 | Re/code.
What if someone could call you on the telephone — while you were in your car? That’s the astonishing premise of this 1959 clip from newsreel archive British Pathe. Heads up: Gender politics back then were also comparatively unsophisticated. Pathe produced more than 90,000 newsreel clips during the 1900s, and it has nowuploaded almost all of them to a YouTube channel.
