Historical Pictures/Videos/News

Post by Yuli Ban »

Relaunch of the old thread, starting with the picture that started it all:

Older are known to exist, but have been lost to time. I believe there is one proto-photograph that still exists that may date back to the 1790s, but I have to look into it more deeply.
And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future
