Photo Tampering Throughout History

Well these folks never waited for photoshop. How I see where is headed! A great sampling of photo tampering throughout history.

Circa 1860:
This nearly iconic portrait of U.S. President Abraham Lincoln is a composite of Lincoln’s head and the body of Southern politician, John Calhoun. Putting the date of this photo into context, note that the first permanent photographic image was created in 1826 and the Eastman Dry Plate and Film Company (later to become Eastman Kodak) was created in 1884.
