Apparently, selfie taking is not as recent as we think so.
Found a photo from a 1920s catalogue, with below annotation
The way the photograph was made
on the roof of the Marceau Studio
Fifth Rue, Opposite St. Patrician’s Cathederal
There are many instances of the same –
The selfie stick !
And the evergreen selfie in front of the mirror.
What goes around really comes around !!
