Illustration[edit]

The picture at the bottom of the page, of an older-looking man, seems unlikely to be a picture of the Sadi Carnot discussed in this article, since that man died at the age of 36. Is it possibly a picture of one of his relatives with a similar name? It would be an easy mistake to make.

In fact this is a picture of his father, Lazare Carnot. We had a discussion about it in the french article which is about to be classified as a good article. --82.127.88.191 17:47, 5 March 2007 (UTC)
According to the source of this image, it really is Nicolas Léonard Sadi Carnot and not his father. The caption should probably be modified, unless someone can provide a reliable source claiming it's Lazare. The image is still named, described and categorized as Sadi Carnot on Commons. 129.206.34.16 (talk) 13:37, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
