It is commonly believed that the first photo was made by a Frenchman Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. As for the first daguerreotypic photos of Moscow - they are dated July 5th, 1839. It's when citezens found out about the amazing machine, dagguereotype, that created incredibly precise images without any drawing or painting.

The first photos were shown to public on October 23rd in the shop of K. A. Beckers, he both sold the new magic devices and made photos of the city to order.

The first known to public photos of the Russian capital are dated 1842. Exposure took 30 minutes then, photos were colored, added figures of people to. So they sooner resembled painted pictures.

The unique photographs you are about to see are the oldest dagguereotypic images of Moscow.
