This is the World's first camera, but which camera took its picture?

'This is the picture of World's first camera. But then which camera was used to take the picture of this first camera?' This question is viral on social media in the form of memes and many people are really puzzled by it. But the fact is that this mammoth camera is not the first camera actually. Daguerreotype camera made by Maison Susse Frères in 1839, with a lens by Charles Chevalier was the first successful camera. The mammoth sized camera in the above picture was the world's largest camera then, and was made to click pictures of trains in higher resolution. So it is not the first camera. So it is possible that another smaller camera was used to click picture of this mammoth sized camera. If you find such a meme on your social media feed, you now can educate the others with this fact.

pyramids are 4500 years old, build before the invention of the camera. But we have its photo. Like that, just after the invention of the 1st camera, its photo was not taken. After several years, after constructing second camera, its photo was taken.
