Description

This picture was taken around the year 1900. The laboratory room was in the attic of Reid Hall and was heated by a potbelly stove. On the right is a good example of a large vacuum pump that resembles those sold in the 1850's by Chamberlain of Boston. To the left of the pump is a Wimshurst or other electrostatic machine. A tangent galvanometer sits on the table at the left. On the far left of the big table sits an induction coil, and the Kohlrausch Bridge.
