When was the first fax machine developed?

The first fax machine was developed by a Scottish philosopher and physicist, Alexander Bain (1818-1903) in 1842. By 1924 the scanning technology had improved to an extent that newspapers began using the device to transmit photographs. It was not until the 1980s that fax machines had come into widespread use.
