Twain in Tesla's Lab

Very cool photo of Mark Twain and Nikola Tesla from the Wikimedia Commons.

Mark Twain (penname of Samuel Langhorne Clemens) in the lab of Nikola Tesla, spring of 1894.
Taken in the spring of 1894, and originally published as part of an article by T.C. Martin called "Tesla's Oscillator and Other Inventions" that appeared in the Century Magazine (April 1895).

FASCINATING! Well done, to the guy who posted it. I've heard and read of both these super-heroes, but had not known that they had met. My son put me on to the pic.

Incidentally, if you like really fine English, try reading the poems of Alexander Pope and Thomas Gray. You'll soon see what I mean.
