World's First Selfie

It seems we now live in a society where everyone needs to post pictures of themselves. I mean "selfie" was even named the word of the year in 2013! However, the first selfie may have been found, and it dates back to 1920. This photo was taken by the Byron Company. It is fantastic! The cameras during this time were large, and required long exposures. So this was not very easy to do, unlike today. For more info on this CLICK HERE.
