These Unexplored Historical Photos Are Remarkable
We’ve come a long way in the last couple of centuries and our lives have improved significantly. But the path to get to where we are now was not always easy.
It was a constant battle for survival, while trying to improve our living conditions – wars, famine, diseases, but also triumph of human ingenuity and compassion. Priorities in life changed too as we progressed, so many things from the past might look strange to us today. Here are some significant moments from our history that will completely change the way you look at the present!
Today’s life can hardly be imagined without people snapping selfies all the time. You might think it is a rather recent invention, but the first selfie was taken a long time ago, we are talking about the 1800s, believe it or not. This photo dates back to 1837 when Robert Cornelius probably took the first selfie ever. And no, it was not taken by a smartphone nor posted on any social media websites.
