Actually, there is some what of a debate about these
two "first photographs". 
 The officials at the University of Texas where the
rooftop photo resides (about a 20 minute bike ride
from my house ( lucky me )) claim that the heliograph
in French possession is not a true photograph since it
was not taken with a camera and the rooftop photo is
since it was taken with a camera.
