We're talking history here

I know zilch (well, this much) about this group, but this photo of them was apparently the first photo ever published on the World Wide Web.

And you thought I was an old-timer.

That can't be right. They're all fully clothed.

You're thinking of the second through 174th photos.

Joey "The Duke of URL" Anuff once wrote at Suck:

"The first web page was a résumé. The second named the first 'Cool Site of the Year' and presented it with a ghastly HTML-ready award GIF. The third was a hotlist, assiduously indexing the previous two."

I suspect that back then, Usenet and the BBS were still the primo smut venues.
