Caption: Royal Institution Christmas Lecture, 1901. The Christmas Lectures for children have been held annually since 1825 at the Royal Institution, London, UK. The 1901 lectures were presented by British physicist John Ambrose Fleming (1849-1945). The title of the lectures was 'Waves and Ripples in Water, Air and Aether'. Educated at University College London and Cambridge University, Fleming is best-known for inventing the vacuum tube in 1904. This crucial advance in electronics was used in radios and other electrical equipment for many decades. Fleming, who worked as a consultant for both the Marconi and Edison companies, was knighted in 1929.
