"Time travel will be invented in the year 2025. How do we know? Because that is the year that this delightful lady claimed to have traveled from. In the year 1898, according the contemporary reports, Alexandria Alexis appeared 'as if from nowhere' and took New York society by storm. Some fawned over her while others claimed she was insane.

This is the first photograph of a person.  
Philadelphia, November 1839. "Robert Cornelius, self-portrait facing front, arms crossed. Inscription on backing: The first light-picture ever taken. 1839." One of the first photographs made in the United States, this quarter-plate daguerreotype, taken in the yard of the Cornelius family's lamp-making business in Philadelphia.
I love his face... the way he is looking at the camera.
Do you think he has ANY clue about what's to come??
How much…

A beautiful lady. This is Selika Lazevski, a 19th century equestrian photographed by Felix Nadar in 1891. She was an écuyère who performed haute école - which means she was an equestrian who rode high school dressage in French circuses in the 19th century. She was photographed by Felix Nadar in 1891.
