What was the first picture ever taken?


1 Answer

As in the depiction of an object, person or scene, the oldest 'picture' would be cave drawings from over 40,000 years old. The world’s earliest surviving 'photograph' was a shot taken from an upstairs window at Joseph Nicéphore Niépce's estate in Burgundy, in 1826 or 1827.
