The first ever photo was taken in 1826. Joseph Niépce from France took a picture of the view from a window. Since then, billions of photos have been taken, most of them have been lost, but some of them became incredibly popular as they depict amazing events of the past.

iBuzz has rummaged through the archives to find these rare shots (we bet you’ve never seen some of them)! We also suppose they’d make history books way more interesting and fascinating.
