    Epilsk - It's a lap dog. The cameras at the time required long exposures - people needed to sit still while the shot was taken. The dog clearly couldn't :)

    wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! can you imagine what these people would have thought if they had been told that in a hundred years time the whole world would see the picture, thanks to tecnology. At the time they were just inventing the light! In 1877 electric lights were only used by a few people! ... they would have certainly asked: what is technology??
