Famous Historical Photos Reimagined As Instagrams Are The Best Thing On The Internet

Thankfully, today's generation of image-obsessed individuals have Instagram to capture all the oh-so-important life milestones, such as yesterday's delicious brunch spread or last week's artsy moment alone before a bathroom mirror. But what if the ubiquitous photo-sharing platform had been around for history's most iconic moments?

Enter our new favorite Tumblr, Histagrams, which imagines what history's finest characters, from Moses to Titanic's Jack Dawson, would have deemed worthy of their feeds. The hilarious alter-net reality answers some of our greatest historical questions, including how the Beatles found their band name and how Jackson Pollock discovered his signature artistic style. But honestly, nothing compares to Charles Darwin's #Movember selfie.

The site was created by Gusto NYC (the mind behind Celebs With No Eyebrows) and Gavin Alaoen (of the tumblr "mckaylaisnotimpressed" fame).

Check out 10 of the best historical Instagrams to never hit the internet below, and head to Histagrams to see more.
