Claire Miles - June 27, 2022

The world is constantly evolving, and so many things make life easier today, such as cars, cellphones, and computers. However, have you ever wondered what these things looked like when they first made their debut to the world? Things from the past don’t look quite the same as they do today, and if you want to know what the very first McDonald’s or bikini looked like, keep reading.  Here are some interesting photographs of the world’s very first things.

 

THE FIRST BOTTLE OF COCA-COLA SOLD PUBLICLY, 1894

Coca-Cola was created by a pharmacist from Atlanta in 1886, and the world hasn’t been the same ever since. Today, coke and diet coke are the two most popular sodas sold in the United States. Interestingly, this bottle has written directions on it of how to pour yourself a glass. Today it’s a famous soft drink, but back then, this bottle just contained syrup.

 

THE FIRST PHOTOGRAPH OF LIGHTENING, 1886

This picture of lightening was photographed for the first time in 1886. They say that lightening never strikes the same place twice, so luckily for William Jennings, he was able to capture the very first ever lightening strike on camera. This photo was taken in Philadelphia from his rooftop.

 

THE FIRST MCDONALD’S, SAN BERNADINO, 1940

The very first McDonald’s restaurant opened in 1940 in San Bernardino, California by two brothers. Their concept was to produce large quantities of food very quickly for a low price. Today, McDonald’s is one of the largest fast-food companies in America and serves an average of 69 million customers every day.

 

THE FIRST SUCCESSFUL VITALLIUM DENTAL SCREW IMPLANT

The first successful dental implant that was inserted into a human was performed by Dr. Alan Strock in 1937. Back then it was a struggle to create a material that wouldn’t be rejected by the body, so the same material used in hip bone implants was used for tooth implants. Today, titanium is widely used and dental implants are the go-to solution for missing teeth.
