Original photograph showing Albert Einstein and Charles Steinmetz standing together. The photograph was originally taken on 23 April 1921 during a demonstration of RCA's experimental transoceanic communication station at New Brunswick, NJ to a group of distinguished scientists. The photograph includes a group of 19 scientists. In 1924, after Steinmetz's death, a new version of the image was created in which all the scientists were all removed except for Einstein and Steinmetz.
