In an English Light

Thoughts of an English teenager who should have been born in a former time. Romantic traditionalist. Old soul.

Welcome to the depths of my mind. Check out my autumn blog

I wish people didn’t think silence was awkward, just enjoy it. Not every space has to be filled with words.

The Euphonia, a mid-19th century gadget that could simulate human speech by pumping bellows-fed air over an artificial tongue set in a chamber of weird plates and valves. It had a woman’s face and coils of hair in ringlets, and spoke in a “weird, ghostly monotone." 
By pumping air with the bellows and manipulating a series of plates, chambers, and other apparatus, including an artificial tongue, the operator could make it speak any European language. It was even able to sing the anthem God Save the Queen. The Euphonia was invented in 1845 by Joseph Faber, a German immigrant. A little known fact is that this machine greatly influenced the invention of the telephone.
