Festival of Britain Periodic Table

To mark the anniversary of Mendeleev’s birth in 1834, here is a little postcard that sits on my desk. It is the Periodic Table mural created by Edgar Longman for the Festival of Britain in 1951. I find the spiral form fascinating, and love how all the women are wearing bobby socks!

It was actually brightly coloured, as can be seen on the Chemogenesis site.
