Not many people get to say they were the first to do something important in history. Think about the first person to fly a powered airplane or organize a charity walk – only one for each. These big moments happened throughout history, but it was in the 1800s, with the invention of photography, that most people could actually see these firsts as they happened. Instead of just reading about them or looking at drawings, people could see real photos, making them feel like they were part of those moments.

Looking at photos of historical firsts isn’t just about reliving the past. It also lets us see how technology and ideas have advanced, showing the clever and curious side of humanity.
