First photo with the middle finger

Old Hoss Radbourne flips a bird

this is a team photo of the Red Sox in 1886. In the top left you see Charley "Old Hoss" Radbourn giving the finger next to a teammates head. This is the first known photograph to feature the gesture (although written record go back some 2500 years)
