This thread is concerning the "time-travelling hipster." (Sorry for the formal tone; I just finished writing an important letter.) If you're not
familiar with the time-travelling hipster, let me just give a brief synopsis about him. The picture that I include in the OP took place at the
re-opening of the South Fork Bridge, in 1941, in British Columbia. Everybody there has the usual formal attire, for example, hats and suits, but our
alleged time- traveller here has a modern hair-style, sunglasses, and what appears to be a silkscreen T-shirt. In this thread, I'm not really trying
to form a discussion about him. I'm sort of trying to approach this from a more methodical point-of-view. Here's the picture of him, if you're not
familiar with photograph:
I have a question that may help us narrow down whether this so-called hipster really belongs to that time-period. My question is this: Does anybody
recognize the silkscreen logo on his shirt? If not, is there a way to find out what possible company that logo comes from (via the internets, or some
other method)? I would also appreciate other questions that focus on the logo of our time-travelling friend here. Wikipedia says that his T-shirt has
been debunked because the logo of his shirt is similar to the logo of the Montreal Maroons. First of all, being similar and being the same thing is
just that; not the same thing. If you look at the Montreal Maroons logo it appears to be a serifed logo, whereas the logo on the hipster's shirt is
sans serif. So that theory flies out the window.
Let's just say for arguments sake that he actually is a time-traveller, his M logo bears a striking resemblance to the logo for Marathon Petroleum
(founded as a subsidiary of Marathon Oil on Sept. 1, 2005). But I don't want to jump ahead of myself and lead people down the wrong path.
I welcome any thoughts, and here's a picture of our time-travelling colleague, for the lulz.
