The first photograph taken of a person. In case you didn't notice, there's a little figure getting his shoe cleaned on the street. According to wikipedia, this is the first photograph with a person in it taken in 1838 by Louis Daguerre. The exposure time was about 10 minutes, therefore the moving traffic and other people are invisible. The man in the picture however, stood still.
