Western Union Office: For a fraction of the cost of a long-distance telephone call, Western Union can get a telegram to almost anywhere in a matter of hours. Incoming telegrams are delivered by young bicycle messengers, the best of whom is 14-year-old Bobby Ashbourne, who knows every shortcut and dead end.
Western Union can send a stateside telegram for 3 cents a word, while international rates run five to six times that amount. Telegrams sent stateside usually arrive the same day, while international telegrams may take a day or more to deliver. Incoming telegrams are delivered by bicycle messengers.
