Trivia: In the 1820s, the world’s first photograph was taken in which country?
Correct Answer: France
So why is this answer correct? : Nicéphore Niépce took the first known photograph, “View from the Window at Le Gras,” between 1826 and 1827 at his family’s countryside home in Saint-Loup-de-Varennes, France. Faint shadows of a courtyard and outbuildings were created by spreading varnish over a pewter plate and placing it in a camera obscura for a few hours.
