    Very Old Portrait

    This link and some others are doing the rounds on the internetwebs.

    I found the idea of the age of the image rather beguiling.

    New England man had oldest birth date ever to be photographed - New Market Press

    From the link --
    "New Englander Conrad Heyer was born in 1749 and was 103 when he was photographed.

    #According to the Maine Historical Society, Heyer may be the earliest born human being ever photographed."
