The Telephoto room at the Daily Mirror Fetters Lane offices in central London. Photographs were received as well as transmitted over the public telephone network in as little time as 8 minutes, which for 1960 was fast. Today images are emailed in seconds. Seen in the background is Telephoto Technician Bernard Coster who along with Guy Bartholomew developed one of the first telephoto machines to be used in the British media.
