    I have never seen a photo taken of him. Given that he died in 1844, I am/was not sure any exist. I was referring to illustrations.

    That should be Joseph Smith Jr.

    But it does look like the one posted below (with whig? longer hair?). Just check the eyes.

    Ha! By the time the Japanese were done with them, Korea had a per capita income roughly equal to that of the poorest African colonies.

    Korea was one of the most industrialized countries in the world at the end of World War II. But then the Communists ransacked the south and the Americans razed the north.

    NORTH Korea was industrialized. The south was still the imperial breadbasket, dominated by plantations owned by the Yangbans.

    Truly historic photos:

    Joseph Nicéphore Niépce "View from the Window at Le Gras" ca 1826
    The First Photograph—or, more correctly, the world's first permanent photograph from nature— is a one-of-a-kind permanent positive-image process, secured upon the surface of a pewter plate in 1826. As such, the process did not provide for a transparent negative or for multiple positive printings on paper as later photographic processes did and continue to do today. Among the special qualities of this heliograph is the very fact that Joseph Nicéphore Niépce could only produce a singular photograph with any exposure he made. Thus, the object on view is the unique original; the creator could make no more duplicates of it.


    One of the first Daguerrotypes. Boulevard du Temple, Paris, 1838. Actually a busy street, the picture appears to be of an empty "ghost city" because of the long exposure time. The only activity caught was a man receiving a shoe shine, because he was not moving around too much.


    An even earlier Daguerrotype, made in 1837.


    One of the first talbotypes, created by Henry Fox Talbot to rival the daguerreotype. I dont remember what year this was taken in, though, I'd have to look it up.
