Les Horribles Cernettes, the first image on the Web1992 July 18th

Silvano de Gennaro, an Italian computer scientist who worked at CERN research labs, was asked by Tim Berners-Lee to scan and upload a photo of a parody pop-group called Les Horribles Cernettes (The Horrible CERN Girls) onto the info.cern.ch website. The photo became one of the first images to be published on the World Wide Web.
