1910's Large photograph of the abandoned Wardenclyffe Tower on Long Island. It was the project of Nikola Tesla and while it seemed like another stroke of genius, this would be the idea that did him in. Here it sat abandoned in New York, a vestige of what might have been from the genius but troubled mind of Nikola Tesla. Issued earlier (c. 1910's) but later stamped by the Keystone View Company. This is the only known image of this tower that we have ever seen in person or available for sale anywhere! An important piece of scientific history that is being offered here for the first time ever!
