The four wooden Marconi wireless towers at Poldhu, Mullion, Cornwall. Before 1912
A view of the four wooden 200ft Marconi towers at Poldhu, built by early 1902, showing the guide wires and signal station buildings. View from across the beach at Poldhu. The earlier two-masted tower installation, which was used by Guglielmo Marconi to transmit the first transatlantic radio message on 12th December 1901, was damaged by storms. Poldhu was taken over by the Royal Navy after the First World War and continued to operate as a research station until 1933, after which the site was cleared and donated to the National Trust. A granite monument, erected in 1937 by the Marconi Company, now stands on the site. A man is lying on the grass in the foreground. Photographer: Arthur William Jordan
