I just thought it was odd, that's all..


Back on the original pic.....

As for the M logo, I wonder if it's McGill University. (It's in the right area), and there's a pic of some of the lads in sports sweaters with a similar M logo. I know the pic is from prior to the 40's. Jack Wright (a famous tennis player of the time) is featured in it.

I just posted this is another "hipster time traveler" thread, so I'm gonna just copy and paste. My simple analysis:

Come on guys, just look at him and think for a second. He drives a motorcycle! Yes, his hair is long, but it looks like he was riding in the wind. His sunglasses are called motorcycle steampunk goggles. Similar to this:





They're supposed to keep the wind out of your eyes while driving a motorcycle, and yes, they were produced in the 30's and 40's, and quit common for motorcycle riders.

His jacket looks like another motorcycle jacket. Some were all leather, some had wool around the collar, similar to a bomber-style jacket, and other had the wool on the outside, while it still being a leather jacket. This one was from 1930:




As for the shirt, I don't know, but it's just a regular shirt. There you go. A guy with long hair that looks like he just got done ridding a motorcycle, hence the steampunk glasses, and motorcycle jacket.

Even the so called M don't have to be the letter M can also be a design on a knitted shirt.

Honestly, it's beyond me that anyone thinks they can see pupils in that photo. Regardless; I've been taking photographs and filming for years. You can take a snapshot of anyone and catch them in a slow head-turn, resulting in the illusion that they are looking at something they're not. I've taken photos of people I KNOW who appear to be looking at a person of the opposite s*x "with desire." Truth is, it's a moment in time that is meaningless.

I've taken hundreds of videos and pics...

what's the date this pic was taken?

The Smithsonian museum has ‘the oldest printed T-shirt’ on record in their collection and on display. It is a campaign shirt for New York Gov. Thomas Dewey's 1948 presidential campaign.

If we could date the pic...we should be closer to know if the guy is a time traveler or not.

Since he's dressed like that, it makes me wonder if he's from our generation. Maybe there are time machines that we don't know about.

Nice. However as evident in the photo I post below.......

...the letters are clearly sown on, or even pinned on.

He is NOT wearing a motorcycle jacket or any kind of jacket. I already said that on another website it was "college sweater". Whatever he's wearing has no semblance whatsoever to your photo.

You could have mentioned that the photo you show has been altered! The M is now a W. The guy's sweater (NOT jacket) has had its left side removed so that we can see the W. Who altered the photo and why?

Yes, I agree, the photo looks altered. For reference check here:

Forgetomori Article on Time Traveller

Who altered the photo, indeed?

No offense, but there is no way in seven hells that McGill is anywhere near there. McGill is in Quebec, the photo being discussed was taken in a remote town in British Columbia.

The "time traveler" is wearing a T-SHIRT with an M on it. The guys in that photo are wearing SWEATERS of some kind with an M on them.

I don't think it is total time travel, like in the movies where you can just punch in a date and year and you are there. I think that they can establish time corridors. So, If I build one now, year 2010, then as long as that corridor or passageway is maintained, than anyone from any time where the gate is still open, can travel though it and meet me in the present. I wonder, what if the whole planet can be set up like a time gate...

Point taken, but I still think from reading my post that I was clear in my intend to show it could be a knitted design rather than a letter. (and image had clear signs of photoshop) Next time ill use a second or two to write the word photoshop so you dont get all confused, and need to think and such. Cheers!

I must be the only one on ATS who knows nothing about this photograph. Can someone fill me in. It appears to me like every individual in the photograph is looking at a different place then everyone one else in the photo. I could not find any two people looking at the exact same location. This males the photograph suspect IMHO. Any context for the photograph?
It almost feels like the photographed was staged.


I seem to remember finding an analysis of this photo that involved tracking down the clothes, glasses, hairstyle etc of the "time traveller", and establishing that they were all available at the time of the photo. The guy wasn't a time traveller, just cutting edge trendy.

That did sound a little more plausible to me. This doesn't mean he isn't a time traveller, it just means there is no "smoking gun" in the picture.

I find it quite interesting that this guys "style" so closely resembles the same style that young men in or just out of college have at this time today. When did T-shirt logos of companies become popular? Maybe in the mid to late 80's with the Coca-Cola shirt fad? Then just recently again for the whole 80's nostalgia look which is just going out of fashion now. Time traveler!??! or Photoshop. Which seems more reasonable? What was going on in this picture anyway that so many people were crowded around this car?

Has anyone had the idea that this could be a picture that was taken on a film set or something and there was a guy that worked on the film just doing a bit of "photo bombing" ?

Well what does anyone think of that if it hasn't been said like 500 times?

Where is the definitive proof the photo was found in a museum in the 50's?

Oh well!


Peace
