Okay, so a quick Googling and we came across this beautiful image from France, taken in 1838. We're not sure who the person in the photo is, but they were the first person ever captured on film, saved for eternity. Pretty neat.
In 1903 Pittsburgh was king of the baseball world, as they were the National League representative in the first-ever World Series. This wonderful old image shows the city back from the year prior, in 1902.
