Commercial Cable Company · 1899-1964

— Atlantic Telegraph Cables Trail · 1857-1966 · Stop WV7 —

 

This building, designed by renowned Irish architect
J.F. Fuller FSA, housed the offices of the
Commercial Cable Company from 1899 to 1964.
Worldwide telegraphs were received and transmitted
from here. Waterville was one of the largest cable
stations in the world with a peak staff of approx.
300. The offices operated 365 days a year round
the clock, with a rotating shift pattern of days
& nights and senior telegraphists on call if
problems arose. "The Operating Room" was located
on the main floor. On the top floor was the
Superintendent's office, along with other senior
staff offices and the "Supper Room".
