Picture of the Day: The Original Selfie Stick, 1934

The Original Selfie Stick, 1934

Photographer Unknown via Bleckplump on Imgur

Could this be the first iteration of the modern-day selfie stick? Back when sticks were actual— sticks?

I couldn’t dig up more info on this photo, but according to the original uploader, it’s a self-portrait of Helmer Larsson and his wife Naemi Larsson who lived in Stöpafors, Wermland, Sweden.

Helmer appears to be using a fallen branch to press the shutter button and I have no idea how long they had to hold that pose for.
