The life stages of Rabbi Hermann Adler

Here are some fantastic pictures of R. Hermann Adler (1839-1911) at various stages of his life, from a boy of 8 to yeshiva bochur at 17, young rabbi at 24, marriage at 27, established rabbi at 37, and "delegate Chief Rabbi" - due to the poor health of his father - at 44.
