So, you thought the selfie was something new? Apparently not! Here is the evidence that people have been taking selfies since the late 1800s  – even naked selfies! It’s not just the celebrities of today who love showing off their bods! These photos range from the 1890s to the 1970s, some are self-portraits done with a timer, but lots could have been selfies taken today!
