According to NOAA, the photo was taken 22 miles southwest of Howard, SD. on August 28th, 1884.

However, the very first known photograph of a tornado was taken on April 26, 1884 at Garnett, Kansas. Amateur photographer A.A. Adams just had enough time to assemble his cumbersome box camera and capture this singular image:
