Some notable pictures from history

Looks at these pictures?
They look unremarkable.

But they are notable for being i) the first photograph ever taken! (1826)
(The blurred one)

ii) The first photo of a human(1838)
(the street view- you can just make the man out having his shoes polished)

These pictures were taken by french men Joseph Nicéphore Niépce and Louis Jacques-Mande Daguerre, pioneers in photography who, together, wnet on to produce the worlds first commerical photographic process, the Daguerreotype
