Albert Einstein goes sailing

Albert Einstein sits at the tiller of a sailboat in this photo, which was taken sometime around 1950. By that point, Einstein's fame was secure: he won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921, and had been at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Studies since 1933. Einstein was born in 1879, so he would have been roughly 70 years old when this photo was taken. Einstein died of heart failure in 1955.
