Variety Theatre, Dr. Walford Bodie

Dr. Walford Bodie 1869 - 1939, One of the most famed and controversial Music Hall performers of his day. Known as the Electrical Wizzard, he would often start his shows by passing high voltage electrical current through his body (actually harmless static electricity) and once employed the use of an electric chair. In this illustration he seems to be curing crippled children to walk again through the power of electricity...and love! A friend of Harry Houdini.

Lecture on Stephen Gray's discoveries in electricity

A lecture at the Charterhouse, London on Stephen Gray's discoveries in electricity. In the early eighteenth century, Gray demonstrated that charges of electricity could be conducted by some materials for distances as great as 765 feet, while others did not conduct electricity at all. Eventually, he was able to send charges through 88 metres of wire suspended on silken threads to operate an electroscope - an instrument used to detect static electricity. By sending an electrical signal from one place to another, Gray established the basic principle of the electric telegraph.
