If I was a time traveler walking around in the 1940's I doubt I'd be going about in my modern clothes.

I have pixs of my Dad circa 1940 with the same haircut...also wearing a college letterman's sweater. I really don't think this has anything to do with time travel. :no:

:mellow: Fake...totally fake,  :unsure: docted it up to gain attention on the internet.  :sleepy: Dont' believe in anything you see on the net, because chances are something like a "time travel" photo is a fake. Then again, my bro spoke of his childhood dream of time travel and guess who appears inthe American bicentennial photo at the Mall in Washington DC on the "Our Century" book written by Peter Jennings? It looks like him dressed in typically 1970s clothing, :blink:  and stares at the festivities behind a woman in a Dolly Madison costume.

My thoughts... cause I know you wanna read them! lol...

The arm is strange, however he might be pushing through the crowd.

His clothing and general appearance are not. His height is no indicator either, my grandfather who was alive and in his twenties at the time of the photo was 6 foot 6.

The light source seems consistant. So either he is there, or the photoshoppers are a bit smarter than normal... but then the arm again!

I know a guy (strange guy) who dresses like he lives in the forties. In photos (of which I haven't any) I would assume he would look out of place, cause he sure does just walking around. So it might seem that he is a time traveller from the past!

It is not a hoax, and it is not a time traveler. It could be someone who is a little taller than average, with a camera and sunglasses. That camera he has isn't like a Panasonic Lumix or anything either.

Even in the darkest shadows Light will eventually shine,
Even if that ray is only as thick as a golden strand of twine.
Darkness will scatter, Dead things will shatter,
And blossoms will bloom a new life...

This could be 2 things. Either the photo has been edited to place a man of modern times into a 1940's picture and call him a "time traveler" or it might have been a local party or something with a 1940's theme here in the modern time and the guy in the picture didn't bother to dress up.
Because you see parties like that all the time? lol do they actually have those?

If you read the article you'll notice he ISN'T holding the camera, its the guy behind him holding it. very strange.....  
Rubbish. He's holding the camera. Why would someone behind and to his right hold a camera in that position at center of the abdomen? Are tehy trying to give him a free camera? Are his arms gone or broken? There isn't even a good camera angle from there, just the backs of heads.

also "silk Screening" wasnt around til the late 40's....

Rubbish again... The process was well known and used decades, if not centuries, before that. From wiki

Quote

Screen printing first appeared in a recognizable form in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD).
....
Screen printing was largely introduced to Western Europe from Asia sometime in the late 1700s, but did not gain large acceptance or use in Europe until silk mesh was more available for trade from the east and a profitable outlet for the medium discovered.
....
Screen printing was first patented in England by Samuel Simon in 1907.
....
Early in the 1910s, several printers experimenting with photo-reactive chemicals used the well-known actinic light activated cross linking or hardening traits of potassium, sodium or ammonium Chromate and dichromate chemicals with glues and gelatin compounds.
....
Joseph Ulano founded the industry chemical supplier Ulano and in 1928 created a method of applying a lacquer soluble stencil material to a removable base.
....
Originally a profitable industrial technology, screen printing was eventually adopted by artists as an expressive and conveniently repeatable medium for duplication well before the 1900s.
....
A group of artists who later formed the National Serigraphic Society coined the word Serigraphy in the 1930s to differentiate the artistic application of screen printing from the industrial use of the process.

If you look closely, he is wearing a vest sweater, with a coat under it and the shirt with the lettering/print. the coat matches the covering on his arm. The guy behind him can't be placing his arm that way from that angle, the guys upper are would have to be unnaturally long with normal length lower forarms and hands, that just does not make sense and He would be the one we notice on this pic, not the so called time traveller.

Posted 19 April 2010 - 12:24 AM

LoL. The guy does look like someone who would be time travelling. Trying to fit in with the times.

Most likely he isnt though of course.

Iif that's so, the man in such strange but heroic cape outfit was there performing "Superman" if this was taken in 1950 or the WW2 era sidekick "Captain Canada" on the patriotic war bond drives on the American side on the first recorded Cosplay character custome ever.  :lol:

i vote for fake.

the picture is obvious very unnatural . what made the guy so stood up is not just his clothes but also his image is a lot sharper then the rest. the light shading on him is also wrong.
