This photograph of Ernest Rutherford appears in my Photographic Periodic Table Poster representing rutherfordium, which is named after him. This highly unstable element can't reasonably be photographed, and a picture of its namesake seemed like a reasonable alternative. The sample photograph includes text exactly as it appears in the poster, which you are encouraged to buy a copy of.
