The oldest known Selfie, taken in 1838 by Robert Cornelius. Sadly, he’s not on Facebook so we can’t tag him, until FB starts the whole Mormon trick and signs dead people up.

According to this horribly titled article by Distractify, Robert Cornelius took this photo outside the store his family owned. It became famous for being the first self portrait or as its commonly now known, a “selfie.”
