    John Quincy Adams (1825-1829)

    The first President of the United States to be photographed. Here in 1843, 14 years after leaving office.




    William Harrison (1841)

    The first incumbent President to be photographed. In actuality this is an 1850 copy of an 1841 daguerreotype but this is still a taken image of President Harrison during his short tenure not long before his death.

    Four Kings of England, 1908

    On the far right is the current King Edward VII (1901-1910), on the far left is his son the future King George V (1910-1936), in the background George's eldest son the future King Edward VIII (1936) and in the foreground George's second eldest son the future King George VI (1936-1952)

    Context: Edward VII is Queen Elizabeth II's great-grandfather, George VI is her grandfather, Edward VIII is her uncle and George VI is her father.

    "View from the Window at Le Gras", oldest surviving camera photograph.



    Big pic

    "Boulevard du Temple", 1838, generally accepted as the first photograph to include people: a man shining his customer's shoes.
    ('Boulevard du Temple' was a busy street, but because the exposure time was several minutes, only the bootshiner and his customer appear in the image.)
