Description
Lettering reads; Photograph of dancing girl's foot. Taken Jan or Feb. 1896. Shown at Owens College March 2 1896. ... The lettering is hand-written in pencil on the back of the mount by N.H. Schuster and continues: "This print lay on Arthur Schuster's desk for 38 years until the day he died and was his first photograph of a clinical condition ..." The print was made in 1896 under the direction of the British physicist, Sir Arthur Schuster (1851-1934). Schuster was then a professor at Owen's College (now part of the University of Manchester). He was one of the first to receive the offprint of an article entitled "Über eine neue Art von Strahlen", along with a set of prints from W.K. Röntgen (1845-1923), the German physicist who discovered x-rays in 1895. Sir Arthur's daughter Dr. Nora H. Schuster presented the prints to the Wellcome Institute Library in 1962
