Old photo of Cincinnati gets attention

By Sheila Gray – bio | email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - An old photo of Cincinnati's Riverfront is creating a lot of buzz after a recent discovery.

The picture was taken 162 years ago in 1848, and it was recently posted on National Public Radio's website.

The photo appears to show two men standing on the banks of the Ohio River, which would make it one of the first photographs of a human being.

The first picture of a human was taken just 10 years before that.
