Telemedicine in 1924?

The Concept of Telemedicine existed in 1924!
The only problem, the technology did not exist at that time. This magazine cover is quite remarkable in that it demonstrates the current concept of telemedicine, complete with videoconferencing, remote stethoscope and even an printer! Perhaps this young patient is receiving a prescription.
Also see this interesting article.
