The photograph shows a crowd of people at the reopening of the South Fork Bridge in British Columbia, one of the people there however is wearing shades, a modern looking top and has a portable camera. But is it really a mystery ?

"Itís the short description for the photograph shown at the virtual Bralorne Pioneer Museum, from British Columbia, Canada."

If I wanted to create a controversial fake picture like that I would definetively opt out replacing the camera with an Ipod. I would go for something more subtle but yet quite out of time. Like a ring in the eyebrow or in the nose. Far from being an expert on body piercings I believe it was very unusual for a male to wear ring in the face in the 40's. Maybe he could do it if he was a sailor or a gypsy but the ordinary joes didn't do it. I also believe they did it in the ear lobes only. I know I spotted at least one pirate in the first Pirates Of The Caribean with a nose ring but I perceived th... [More]

Nope lol I'm not all that convinced about time travel. Do i think it would be a great discovery? Yes, but we can't handle that. Plus, Doctor who is a bit of an idiot Maybe humans will become friendlier and more helpful beings in the future, but it just looks like it's all going downhill to me... No time machine will ever change that. Or maybe it will... Never say Never

Just supposing he is out of place, as it has been noted, there's the woman and the girl looking at him, right? Maybe the photographer taking the photo intentionally took a picture of that guy just because he thought, "that guy looks a little odd".

Otherwise the old chick next to him is his mum and she made it for him and she said "you aint going out in this weather waith out a sweater" and he said "but muuuuuuuummmm" and she said "here put this one on you look nice in it" and he said "but mum its not cool" and...

Isnít it obvious? The photo was taken in British Columbia. The Canadian Rockies are in British Columbia. The man in question is wearing glacier glasses. The glasses, his attire and the compact camera are consistent with what a mountaineer would have used in the 1940's. Sorry, no time travelers here!

If I was a time traveler walking around in the 1940's I doubt I'd be going about in my modern clothes. The only clothes that never go out of fashion is black suit and black shoes lol His shirt is simply a hockey shirt from a team that played in Canada 1924-38 Montreal Maroons http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Montreal_Maroons
