Happy birthday National Geographic! To celebrate our 130th anniversary, we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite “firsts” in National Geographic history. This is an image by pioneering journalist Eliza Scidmore who was the magazine's first official female writer, photographer, and board member. Here, three Japanese girls in kimonos are framed by cherry blossoms, published in 1914. Scidmore later helped bring the trees to Washington, D.C.

nicolasalter__loves_life_ : I used the photo for its beauty and the pouring of tea but also because she played such a fundamental role in bringing the cherry blossoms to Washington I wanted to celebrate her . It was amazing in those days for a woman to be a photograph and an activist .
