History re-photographed: This is a project to restore original greyscale images so that they contain a fair representation of the original colour content. A number of algorithms have been developed and some are continually being improved. The mathematical analysis and the necessary algorithms are the intellectual property of Robin Marshall and hence the colour component of the images here are copyright. Licences are avaiable for commercial use. Private use, beyond viewing the images on this web page is not permitted.To see a larger version, click on the image. All images are availabl at higher resolution, from 1600 pixels on the longest edge to over 3000 in some cases.


H G J Moseley Colour Image

Henry G J Moseley essentially carried out all of his reasearch at Manchster University before borrowing a bench at Oxford, where he spent a few months unpaid, before setting off to Turkey in WWI, where he was killed in action. At Manchester despite disapproval from Rutherford, he used x-rays to sort out the periodic table, designating Z, the atomic numbers as the ordering number, rather than A, the atomic mass.
