    Shows two business partners in a Fleet Street office. One partner holds a telegram in his hand and, after expressing his wonder at this age of steam and gas, boasts to his colleague of the 'facilities offered us by electricity', and points out that he has just received a telegram which was sent from nearby Oxford Street 'only' the previous afternoon.
