I'm looking for a high resolution picture of Alan Archibal Campbell Swinton to print an 8x10 picture for display along side an article about his "Distant Electric Vision". I can only find very small images online. The image below is from

It is the best I can find and I really think it looks fantastic. Unfortunately there is no contact info on the page to ask for a larger version and it is no where near large enough to print and display.

That site is maintained by Iain Baird, grandson of John Logie. He is a curator at the National Media Museum in England. I'm sure you can contact him there.
