Cavendish Digital Photoarchive - second release of historic photographs now available

The second release of historic photographs of people, equipment and events, mostly from the early history of the Cavendish Laboratory up to about 1970, is now available on line at:

The combined PhotoArchive now contains 406 images, 367 in black and white and 39 in colour.  The first release contained images of many famous pieces of equipment.  In this second release, there are more images of experiments and equipment, but there are also letters and writings, more portraits of many of distinguished staff members and, in particular, many images of daily life in the Laboratory. Please pass on this information about the second release to all interested parties.
