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.

  • I love photos like these. Interesting to see how the times have changed and we have the pictures to prove it. :)

    I also find it sad people can't read more than four words ahead and think that this whole myTake is about selfies when only the first photo was, only to criticize that the rest of the photos are not. LOL
