This Photo circulating via social media and the internet purports to depict the the world's first camera. But the question is Which camera took a picture of the world’s first camera?


the answer is that the camera in picture is the world’s largest camera built in 1900, by the photographer by George R. Lawrence. He was commissioned by the Chicago & Alton Railway to shoot the world’s largest photo of one of its trains — a photo measuring 8 feet by 4.5 feet. The camera weighed 900 pounds, required 15 men to move and operate, and cost a whopping $5,000 — enough money back then to buy a large house.

so the camera in the picture isn't the world's first camera but the world’s largest camera.
