Selfie anyone?

1920s selfie

Toronto. On November 1st, George Dunbar dropped me a brief email extolling these rare photos of times past. While none is Canadian, the pictures themselves show the way were were about a century ago when photographs were mostly taken by professionals to record events deemed important in the day.

This is a collection of photographs from Europe and the States. The 15th in the series shows three gentlemen taking a selfie with a postcard camera decades before the word entered our lexicon.

The various photos are on the web.
