When you look at most of the two dozen or so people in this photograph, which belongs to a Canadian museum, there’s no doubt that they’re from 1940, the year in which it was taken. But what about that guy?
Those funky sunglasses? That stamped t-shirt and hippie shawl? The doofy, disinterested expression? He sure as hell doesn’t look like any Roosevelt-era bro I have ever seen. Maybe that’s it – he looks like a “bro”, which we all know didn’t come into existence until the 1970s, at the earliest.
But his entire essence, especially in contrast to the sea of fedoras and 1940s enthusiasm around him, screams that he’s from another era entirely. Sorry, time travel bro, you were spotted. [Forgetomori via BoingBoing]
