Decades before it became the norm for celebrities to post selfies on Instagram, one singer was taking selfies "his way."
According to the New York Daily News, a never-before-seen 1938 photo depicts a 23-year-old Frank Sinatra posing in front of a mirror in his Hoboken bathroom. That and other photos of a young Blue Eyes are a part of "The Sinatra Experience," a collection of images of Sinatra at the Morrison Hotel Gallery in New York City. The exhibit, which focuses on the Chairman of the Board's formative years, marks a hundred years since the iconic crooner's birth.
At the time of the selfie, Sinatra was most likely still working as a singing waiter at The Rustic Cabin in New Jersey. A year later he would release his first commercial record "From the Bottom of My Heart." Two years after that he would become ranked as the top male artist on Billboard.
