About the Image

Electric Chair, 1908 by The Branch Librariesnew York Public Library

Electric chair. Historical photograph (dated 1908) of a man about to be executed by electric chair. The electric chair was developed in the USA in the 1880s as a humane alternative to hanging. It was first used to execute someone in 1890. Restraining straps are needed as massive convulsions may take place as a lethal amount of electric current is passed through the man's body. This current is passed through wires (seen attached to his head and right leg). Wet cloths are used inside the skullcap and on the leg band, to aid conduction of the current. This man has been blindfolded. The Philippines is the only country outside the USA to use the electric chair.

About the Artist - The Branch Librariesnew York Public Library

The Branch Librariesnew York Public Library

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
