Submarine cables have played an important part in the development of world-wide communications since the 1850s. This fascinating map, first developed for the Department of the Navy and published in National Geographic in 1896, shows submarine cables that had been laid, as well as the land-based cable systems that connected to them.

The 1896 Submarine Cables of the World map features:
• Telegraph Cable lines for all of the major cables that had been laid in the world
• Principal connecting Land lines connected to the submarine lines
• Coaling facilities locations showing where ships could obtain fuel. Facilities were classified by the amount of coal they could provide to a single ship.
• Repair facilities showing where ships could be repaired. Facilities were classified according to the level of repair they could offer.
