Historical Hotties: Robert Cornelius

  • Sharebar

Excuse me if you’ve seen this image before — and I’m sure this man is a number one candidate for Historical Hotties posts — but where my blogs go, so does this image of Mr Cornelius. I’m sure you’ll understand why.

Robert Cornelius took this self-portrait of in 1839 and it is thought to be one of the first ever photographs of a human (some sources suggest that this was not merely one of the first human photographs — but the very first).
