I just think these early selfies are THE BEST!!! Love that guy second from the left :). This selfie was taken by a group of photographers in New York in the 1920’s…these guys were so clearly ahead of their time.
Also I love the guys below captured taking a selfie…so millennial!
Or how about this selfie from photographer Joseph Byron in 1909!?! So rad!
I think it’s really cool to see something we associate as very now also exist over a hundred years ago. For me, as sappy as it might sound, it feels like we’re connected and not so different than those people who lived and loved and laughed all those years ago.
Which makes me think we’re also probably not so different from each other right now :).
Just a happy thought for your Friday, my friends!
