Old Timey Wimey Ball

Here's a picture of a reenactor of old time canal keepers. Notice the electric speaker.

The James River & Kanawha Canal here in Richmond was our nation's first commercial canal, and featured electric speakers, wireless Internet, and Buckskins (an early version of Starbucks).
It fared poorly against the combined forces of the Civil War and the railroad system.
