That looks legit.

Looks like he's holding a folding camera... and wearing brazing goggles?
Maybe he was the local Emmett L. Brown type.

It would be nice to know what collection this picture is from, Subby.

When you travel through time you lose connection to your soul, so you can't actually be photographed any more. Like a vampire, sorta. There are actually thousands of people who have traveled back in time but there will never be a photograph of them.

However, the old man and lady next to the time traveler have the same or similar lighting on them as our ersatz epoch sojourner, indicating that something out of frame is casting a shadow on some of the crowd.

If you were to remove the sunglasses and add a big mop of long curly hair to the time traveler, you would see that it is none other than a young Brian May, guitarist from Queen and Doctor of Astrophysics.

Dude built his own guitars from scratch. Is there any doubt he built a time machine as well, probably out of bits of an old fireplace, a motorcycle saddlebag, some pearl buttons and a knitting needle?

I was the last one left after the nuclear holocaust, eh. The whole world had been destroyed, like U.S. blew up Russia and Russia blew up U.S. Fortunately, I had been offworld at the time. There wasn't much to do. All the bowling alleys had been wrecked. So's I spent most of my time looking for beer.

Why would someone go back in time to witness the re-opening of the South Fork Bridge (following the Nov. 1940 flood) in Gold Bridge, B.C., when they could have gone to Pearl Harbor or Berlin or somewhere?

Because you're not going to have the shiat blown out of you from explosions in Gold Bridge B.C? That's like asking "why don't time travelers ever go back to 9/11/2001 at the top of WTC1?

I really wish people who don't know anything about time travel would keep their comments to themselves.

OK so, here's what we know: buddy has gone back in time to 1941, to a little mining town in rural British Columbia. He has Kramer hair, a folding camera, cool shades, and he's wearing some kind of team jersey with the letter "M."

I think right after the photo was taken, the good (and behatted) people of the town stuck a white feather on his lapel and rode him out of town as some kind of enemy alien.

Umm...hello? They do. Coordinates are specific and exact. To do otherwise would be folly, as evidenced by the doomed mission of Dr. Randolph Milison in 2210, when he failed to take into account the volcanic activity on the islands of Hawaii and found himself materializing half in and half out of a then-recently cooled heap of slag. If he had, as advised (and now mandated,) used a hovercraft to phase in a few meters above ground, then the only danger would have been popping in directly into a bird in flight, an anomaly with a minuscule chance of happening (although as you know, it has occurred,) and which in most cases is rarely fatal, except of course for the bird.

How you ever got credentialed is a mystery. Who'd you have to blow to get through Advanced Psy-Physics at the Academy? They should revoke your TML at first opportunity. You are a disgrace to the field.

Only if you think in 2D. Everyone seems to be looking at the same point. The two 'reference heads' are deeper into the shot have their heads tilted slightly more into the sun.

If you look at the people in front of our time traveler, you'll see that the shadows fall the same.

At least that's the story I've been told to perpetuate.

In the year of '39
A simple year, the volunteers
In the days when the lands were few
Here the ships sailed out,
'nto the blue and sunny morn'
Sweetest sight ever seen.

And the night followed day
And the storytellers say
That the score brave souls inside
Though many a'lonely day
Sailed across the milky seas
Ne'er looked back, never feared
Never cried.

(Chorus 1)
Don't you hear my call
Though you're many years away
Don't you hear me callin' you

Write your letters in the sand
For the day I take your hand
In the land that our grandchildren knew

(Verse 2)
In the year of '39
Came a ship in from the blue
The volunteers came home that day

And they bring good news
Of a world so newly born
Though their hearts so heavily weigh

For the earth is old and grey
Little darlin', we'll away
But my love, this cannot be

Oh so many years are gone
Though I'm older but a year
Your mother's eyes, from your eyes,
Cry to me.

(Sing Chorus 1)

Don't you hear my call
Though you're many years away
Don't you hear me callin' you

All your letters in the sand
Cannot heal me like your hand

For my life
Still ahead
Pity me.
