Grab your phone, open the front-facing camera, strike a pose, click, and you’re done. It takes only a few seconds to take the perfect selfie nowadays, but what was it like a century ago?
Well, if you wanted to get into the shot, it took a bit more effort than today. And in a photo that recently emerged on Reddit, you can see a creative photographer who figured out a clever way to include himself in the shot.
It’s not clear who took this photo or when exactly it was taken, and the reverse image search didn’t give any results that would answer these questions. All I can say is that it was taken roughly in the first decade of the 20th century, which would be over 100 years ago. And that it shows a clever way of including a photographer into the shot.
