Extremely rare 1906 photograph of Eugene Curie, doctor and father of famous professor Pierre Curie. His son died in 1906 in a horrific accident and this image was taken most likely in conjunction with this death. This is the only original example we have ever seen in 20+ years of dealing with photo collections and archives that pictures the scientist responsible for the birth of the Curie family dynasty!
