(Fox News) – The above photo provided by Frank Abrams of North
Caroline shows what historians believe is a photo of outlaw Billy
the Kid, second from left, and Pat Garrett, far right, taken in 1880.  Abrams, who bought the photo at a flea market in 20011 for $10,
says forensics experts and facial recognition have verified the
picture after several months of examination. It could be worth 
millions of dollars.

THE PHONOGRAPH ON THIS DAY IN 1877

Thomas Alva Edison with his cylinder phonograph in 1878.

Thomas Edison is known for his many inventions, but his favorite was the
phonograph which was created while working on improvements to the
telegraph and the telephone. He figured out a way to record sound on
tinfoil-coated cylinders with two needles, one for recording and one
for playback. His first words he recorded on the new machine were,
”Mary had a little lamb”.
