The first ever selfie? Maybe was taken in Iran…

This picture might be one of the first selfie in photographic history. It shows a group of women in a funny and comic position. The women were probably ladies-in-waiting of the Qajar Court, the dynasty which has controlled Iran between 1781 and 1925. The picture was taken probably around 1865.
