First Flickr image: "Test Image," December 2003
The very first photo uploaded to Flickr was a test image that was appropriately just the words "Test Image," put up on the site by Cal Henderson, then the company's chief software architect. (Henderson is color blind and has worked on making the Web more accessible to color blind folk, which may explain the odd green-on-grey color scheme.) The first "real" photo, uploaded later the same day, was this adorable picture of Flickr founder Caterina Fake's dog.
