The oldest known photograph of the Alamo in 1849 in San Antonio, Texas. It's a daquerreotype photo. It was taken 13 years after the battle. This photograph is located at the University of Austin in the center of American history. Some websites show the photo flipped (like looking in a mirror). The original photo could be flipped because some photo were developed like that back then on tin type photos. The photo as it appears like this looks like the sketches and paintings of the Alamo at that time.
