West African Telegraph Co

From Graces Guide

1880s The India Rubber, Gutta Percha and Telegraph Works Co promoted the West African Telegraph Company to link French and Portuguese colonies to the Spanish National system, which had a cable terminating at St. Louis, Senegal.

Within four years (1893?) the Eastern Telegraph Co had taken control of this company and it was merged with the Africa Direct Telegraph Co.
