Caption: Electrical battery. This is a condenser battery that dates from 1932. A series of electrical cells are seen, with wires connecting the anodes. The first battery was developed by Volta in 1800. By the early 20th century, a wide range of battery types had been invented, for purposes ranging from laboratory work to powering telegraph networks. This photograph is from a collection made by German physicist Hertha Sponer (the future wife of James Franck) in the years before 1934, while she was living and working in Gottingen, Germany. Franck and Sponer worked at the Physics Institute in the University of Gottingen.Restrictions:
