News photographs were often transmitted via phone lines.
This photograph honoring a group of protesters in Cleveland is a “telephoto.” That means that a photographic print was scanned, and the resulting signals were sent via telephone to a receiving unit that translated them back into pulses of light. Those pulses were used to produce a conventional photographic negative or positive print.
