The Loch Ness Monster smiles for the camera -- sort of, Ellis Island closes, actor William Holden passes away, and Madonna releases "Like a Virgin," all on this day.

1933: Hugh Gray takes the first known photos of the Loch Ness Monster. Walking along the loch after church, Gray took several pictures of a creature that rose up from the lake, but only one of them showed up after they were developed. The image appeared to show a creature with a long tail and thick body at the surface of the loch. The image is blurred suggesting the animal was splashing.
