In October 1927, the Fifth Solvay International Conference was held. From it, there's a semi-famous picture of many of the greatest minds in physics and chemistry of the day*, who had gathered to discuss that new and interesting thing: quantum mechanics.

A redditor (called "mygrapefuit") has done a major work in colorizing the original black and white image, and is making her version of it available for free.

*Einstein, Curie, Bohr, Heisenberg, Dirac, Compton, deBroglie, Plank, Lorentz - half the collection eventually got Nobel Prizes (and Mme Curie is still the only scientist to have ever won the prize in two different fields!)...
