10 July is the birthday of Nikola Tesla, American electrician and inventor. Born in Smilijan, now in Croatia but then part of the Austrian Empire, Tesla was the inventor of wireless, the induction motor and championed the use of alternating current electricity (over the more dangerous direct current).

More pictures relating to the history of electricity can be found here. A much wider selection of illustrations relating to science and scientific discoveries can be found at the Look and Learn picture library.
