In 1826, Joseph Nicephorus Napés took the first surviving photograph of the scene from his studio window in Le Grasse, France. Only a few years passed and photography firmly entered people’s lives, and history lovers found a new, truly invaluable source of information.
Almost two centuries have passed since then, during which time literally every prominent person managed to end up on photographic paper, and we know exactly how almost all famous historical events happened. And, of course, there are many that are extraordinary – after all, everyone wants to leave their memories in history, even if it’s just a faded piece of cardboard measuring ten to fifteen inches.
Historical photos are of particular interest – it’s always nice to see how people lived, for example, a hundred years ago. By the way, there is a very popular community on Reddit called “100 Years Ago” With over 686K participants. Initially, it was conceived in August 2013 as an attempt by enthusiasts to historically document the First World War in photographs, day by day.
But as time went on, it was November 12, 2018 — and community members enjoyed posting photos taken exactly a century before the current date so much that they kept doing it. As a result, we can now look at photographs taken in October 1922, for example.
Perhaps, if all is well in our world, our descendants will look with interest in this community for some photos from 2022, but for now, KristenBellTattoos.com has compiled this selection of the most famous and most interesting community historical photos for you. So fasten your seat belts, our time machine is going back in time!
