Telephotography Service

This category mainly consists of test photographs sent from New York, London, Istanbul, and Copenhagen to Athens, in order to ascertain the quality of the signal and the technical characteristics of the images. 

The photographs almost always depicted beautiful female Hollywood or British cinema actresses, such as July Garland, Dorothy Hart, Barbara Murray, Betty Grable, and Margaret Lockwood. As is natural, these kinds of telephotographs were mostly sent during the early years of the service (1949-1950), although we do see test photographs until 1970. The category includes a total of 34 items.
