Dating clothes photographs
A series that has been popular the past few weeks placed contemporary super-heroes in historical photos: Is it possible that an elaborate hoax could have included a manipulated photograph among the items of a museum exhibit, only to have it put online and finally exposed as “time travel proof” later?
Well, it would be quite an elaborate hoax, but it is possible. Pay attention to the right arm of the “time traveller”: you may realize that the arm actually belongs to the man right behind him. Is there even space for such a large, tall “time traveller” to stand in there?
Despite being an awesome photo and story, the Canadian time traveller is not the first on the genre.
But if we are considering time travel, how can we know if in some other timeline something historical happened right there? As noted, the image is indeed available through the official website for Canada’s museums.
These could be indications that the man was inserted into the image without much care for perspective.
Or perhaps it’s just an unusual perspective, and the arm from the man behind just looks like it’s over the “time traveller”, even touching the camera? I tried to send an email to the Bralorne Pioneer museum, but the address was not valid.
I remember seeing it on Boing Boing, but now I can’t find it! Time travel is an amazing idea, but so far it’s all speculation, fiction, hoax and misunderstandings. Despite being clear that the image, even if authentic, would not be evidence of an out of time man, it’s still possible it could be a hoax.
After all, photoshop jobs mixing modern figures in old photos are not that complex.
