"Victorians Decoded" will explore the effect that telegraphy had on the Victorians, when communications were revolutionised by the laying of a cable along the floor of the Atlantic ocean.

This groundbreaking technology meant that communications, which would previously have taken weeks to be delivered by ship, were now possible within a single day.

Artists responded to this newly connected world with great imagination, and a wider social connection can be seen in Victorian art, science, and the personal papers of telegraph pioneer Sir Charles Wheatstone.
