1844: Photograph of the Duke of Wellington Chris November 24, 2012 1800-1899, Politics 2 CommentsFavourited 852 times Add to favourites Daguerreotype of the Duke of Wellington by Antoine Claudet 2 Responses KC November 24, 2012 It still seems remarkable that you can have a photo of someone who was born in the 1700s Reply John November 24, 2012 It’s amazing that this is a picture of someone who was born in the 1700′s. The 1800′s, although they seem far away, still seem sort of recent, but the 1700′s well that is going back a bit! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
