Technology Memories - Pocket Fax

 In the early 90s I saw a CITY-TV news crew with this little cellular fax viewers - a small box like a slide viewer which were like this, but had a screen inside:

It probably worked like the Faxview, made by Bolton Engineering in 1997.

They could receive faxes from CITY-TV and read them on it. CITY-TV was big on cutting edge technology and had an online presence years before other channels.
