As the Internet approaches its 20th birthday next year, Motherboard has revealed the first photo ever uploaded to the worldwide web. According to the tech site, Internet creator, Tim Berners-Lee uploaded the above photo to CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) on a page to promote musical acts.

This particular picture is the promotional art for Les Horribles Cernettes, a comedy band. The original artwork faded into obscurity in 1998, after the Mac that housed the original gif. file failed.

Interesting, huh?
