Brilliant wrong answer the other night. In the picture round, I asked teams to guess when the world’s first known photograph was taken. Get within 20 years for the points.
Right answer was 1826 and quite a few teams got points, some others guessed a bit late, maybe as late as the 1890s.
But there was a pair of Americans who brilliantly guessed at 1436. Nearly 400 years out – which would explain the lack of photos of Christopher Columbus.
