Hello again, I'd like to post another thread dedicated to past photography, it isn't something weird or unsettling this time but rather historical, mind-blowing and plain wonderful! As previously, I'll explain each and every photo. Take a look:
- The earliest surviving photograph in the world. It's not a drawing, it's actually photographed. 1825.
- The first photographed person in history, Paris, 1838.
- The earliest born photographed person, Hannah Stiley, she was born in 1746 (mid 18th century!), and the photo was taken somewhere in 1840s. She was born thirty years before USA even existed. Right from the time when alleged witches still were burned alive.
- The earliest born photographed male* person, Conrad Hayer, he was born in 1749, served in the Revolutionary War and crossed Delaware with George Washington himself. That's how someone who'd've done it looked like.
- One of, or actually the first, photographs in Russia, Moscow, 1841.
- John Quincy Adams, the US president. The earliest-serving president photograhed. Taken in 1843.
- European Noble woman, born sometime in 1700s. Photographic portrait.
- European peasant woman, born in the mid 1700s. Photographic portrait.
[+18] - maybe unsettling. Post-mortem photography sometime in the late 1800s. Make out of it what you will. Most likely the deceased already started decomposing but it didn't disturb the living. Could be a medical condition.
- The first coloured photograph in the world. 1861, Scotland.
