Post by Admin on Mon Feb 11, 2013 11:04 am

This is a selection of photographs of some of the most important or
famous historical events that have occurred since photography was
invented. In 1884, George Eastman developed the technology of film to
replace photographic plates, leading to the technology used by film
cameras today; nevertheless, many images exist from before that time
that we taken via other photographic methods. Click the photographs for
a larger view.
