Photograph of Wallace in his eighties, undated, after 1905.
This photograph shows Wallace at a desk, looking very distinguished with his long, white beard. Although undated, the photograph was probably taken when Wallace was in his eighties. He remained active as a naturalist, spiritualist and social commentator up to his death in 1913.
