Extraction of radium
Extraction of radium in the old shed where Marie Curie first obtained the element in the early 1900s. From Pierre Curie by Marie Curie (Macmillan, 1923). The book is turning brittle and is therefore included in the Niels Bohr Library's microfilming project. While examining books to prepare them for filming, library staff flag useful pictures to scan and include in the online Emilio Segrè Visual Archives.
