Ministry of Communications building circa 1912. From the time of the founding of the Cabinet until its consolidation during the administrative reorganization during World War II, the Ministry had broad jurisdiction over transportation, communications, and electricity. It was revived after World War II and existed from 1946 to 1949, but during this period it had jurisdiction only over communications and air security.
