Could it be, isn't it more plausible, that he is holding his rolled up handkerchief (very common for the period) and cleaning his ear with it at that
time? Unlike today's society, they were more discrete when in public like this scene. In fact, you can see a man to his right (our left) in the photo
blowing his nose into his handkerchief.
I believe this is eminently more plausible IMO than any unproven existence of time travelers. However, I would love to have that evidence/proof, but I
do not think this is it unfortunately.
