Is this the oldest selfie ever taken?

Pre camera phone, we’re betting selfies were pretty rare – which is what makes this pic so great.

Reddit user John_Jard shared the image online with the caption: ‘My Grandpa taking a selfie in 1935.’ He suggested it might be the ‘original selfie’.

The pic shows his grandpa in his younger days controlling the shutter release with a string.

And like every good selfie, he’s posing with his dog. And thankfully, without a trout pout.

The snap is thought to be taken in Ontario, Canada in 1935.
