    The Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia, the youngest daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, the last sovereign of Imperial Russia, took her very own selfie in 1913 -- five years before her untimely death. Using a Kodak Brownie, a camera released in 1900, and a mirror to capture her own likeness, the then 13-year-old is seen gazing at herself with curiosity.

    This is a photograph from my collection and there were "selfies" long before this one.

    Ms. Wilgus, it's a pleasure to have you speak up. Is your collection viewable online? If 'Woman in Mirror" is any evidence, it must be a very fine one.
