Boulevard du Temple, Paris, 1838, a ghostly photograph

The first photo ever to capture a person on camera (Taken in 1839 by Louis-Jacques Mande Daguerre, the photograph depicts a seemingly empty street in Paris). On the bottom left you can see a man having his shoes shined. He actually stood without moving for the 10 minutes exposure took, and so it seems like he is the only one on the street.
