1930 World Cup News Communication Network

Below is a diagram published in Rio newspaper, Diario da Noite, explaining to its readers how it will be receiving news from Montevideo of the World Cup.

The match report would be transmitted by telephone to the station of the Italcable company in Montevideo. It would transmit the report by its wire cable apparatus that fed into the ocean at a depth 4,000 of  meters that traveled up the Brazilian coastline to the Italcable station's receivers in Rio. That report would then be telephoned to the newspaper offices of Diario da Noite.
