Restaurants on Australia’s famous telegraph line have started posting their menus on their websites.
The menu is part of a series of telegraph menus, launched in October last year, that includes everything from telegraph restaurants to telegraph shops, telegraph cafes and telegraph hotels.
“We’ve made a commitment to make sure that these telegraph places have an amazing experience and to keep the telegraph lines alive for as long as they do,” telegraph spokeswoman Emily Smith said.
“There is a lot of passion behind the concept of telegram restaurants and we want to create a space that reflects that.”

There are telegraph pubs and telegrams in some areas.
But they are the telegraphs of telegraphing.
“It’s a place where you can enjoy the service of the telegram and the teething pains of the public,” Ms Smith said of the restaurants.
“People are going to have to make up their own minds about where they are going, and where they want to go.”
“It would be an awesome place for people who want to enjoy telegraph service in Australia but who are not sure about the place or what they should be eating.”
In some areas, telegram cafes and the other telegraph lodges are in the process of being removed.
The first of these to be taken out is the New South Wales branch of the National Telegraph Museum, which opened in 1884.
“The National Telegraph was built in 1885 and is an amazing example of the way that we have developed our telegraph services over the years,” Ms Simpson said.
The National Archives is also in the early stages of removing its telegraphs from its buildings.
“Our current facilities have a lot to offer,” Ms Jones said.
It’s not just the National Archives that has telegraph problems.
The Tasmanian government is trying to remove the state’s telegraph wires from the coast.
Telegraphs are still being used to transmit teleganglular messages and can still be seen on some state services.
