The Oldest Known Selfie - 10 Interesting Photos from the Past

As much as I hate taking photos of myself, I like seeing other people's interesting photos. Especially if they are old ones. So I had some saved on my computer (creep alert :O) from "distractify" and some other random sites and just wanted to share a few with you guys.

10. The Oldest Known Selfie

These cages were used by some (dumb) 1930s families who wanted their children to get enough sunlight. (Are you kidding me?!)

5. ♫ Cigarettes and Chocolate Milk ♫

That's about it. Let me know if you guys liked it or want to see more. #9 and #5 are probably my favorites. Which one was yours? ;)

    • @Brauliocristo to you both : Oh you don't say. I'm not talking about "paintings". I'm talking about a selfie that is taken by someone. Robert Cornelius took that photo outside the store his family owned.
      Also writing in capital letters won't make you sound convincing when you don't even know how to spell...

  • After a long time... omg this take rocks 😊 I liked that sailor one specially his pose😉 lol

  • I really like number one, I just hope all those guys were able to come back to those women! And I think you should do some creepy old pictures, funny old pictures, generally odd old pictures, etc...

    • Well beauty standards were much different in that time, maybe today's super models would be considered only a 3 in 1922.

  • Photo Number 8... Seriously? They considered those women beautiful? I guess the women of today would have been goddesses in that time period!

    • thats jsut not true, we dont know the circumstances of that photo. Maybe they were friends of judges, or maybe everyone else was just ugly and it was a small pageant.

      Just search for beautiful women 1920s and you'll see some good stuff for sure

    • yeah I don't agree with you, fashionguy.

  • Noice take catcher👍
