The Smithsonian has released this 128 year old recording of Bell that was recorded on a wax and cardboard disc by the man himself more than a century ago. It’s pretty muffled and not easy to make out but it is still a pretty fascinating piece of history.

In the recording listed above, you can hear Bell say, “hear my voice…Alexander Graham Bell”.
