Marie and Pierre Curie on Their Honeymoon

Photo downloaded from Britannica.

I find this photo inspiring. The link to it was sent to me by a cousin of mine (thanks Joe!). It's a photo of the famed physicists and chemist Marie and Pierre Curie. While they shared a Nobel Prize together, Marie was the first person to receive two. The photo was taken in 1895, and while the automobile was not common then they did have other methods of transport from which to choose...but they chose bicycles for their honeymoon transportation. One can only hope that they would have done the same today.
