Since some on this thread apparently don't want to see discussion or pictures of the oldest living thing in Los Angeles anymore, I'll just leave this here.

Perhaps the earliest-known photo of the Hammel palms.

If we assume the young boy is Sheriff Hammel, age 8 or 9, and knowing he was born in 1865, then that dates this image to 1873-4.
