The first ever photo of men drinking beers


We stumbled across this first ever photo showing men doing what they love best, sharing a couple of bevies, on inktank.

Taken by the pioneering Scottish photographers, David Hill and Robert Adamson in Edinburgh in 1844, it came just five years after the first ever photo of a person was shot. Using the Calotype process, they worked together in Adamson’s studio “Rock House”. Here the pair produced over 3000 prints including a wide range of portraits of Scotland’s great and good. Alas, their productive partnership was cut short due to the ill health and untimely death of Adamson in 1848. Nonetheless, their collaboration produced several ground-breaking “action” photographs of soldiers and – perhaps their most famous photograph – two priests walking side by side.
