Old Photograph Glenlair House Scotland


Old photograph of Glenlair House, in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. James Clerk Maxwell, born 13th of June 1831, died 5th of November 1879, lived in Glenlair House. He was a Scottish mathematical physicist. His most prominent achievement was to formulate a set of equations that describe electricity, magnetism, and optics as manifestations of the same phenomenon, namely the electromagnetic field. Maxwell's achievements concerning electromagnetism have been called the " second great unification in physics ", after the first one realised by Isaac Newton.
