This publicity photo taken at Colorado Springs was a double exposure. Tesla poses with his “magnifying transmitter” capable of producing millions of volts of electricity. The discharge here is twenty-two foot in length. The inscription on the photograph is addressed to Sir William Crookes and reads;

“To my illustrious friend Sir William Crookes of whom I always think and whose letters I never answer!“
