Time-traveling Hipster Caught in 1940 Photo?

The above photo was taken in 1940 and is currently on display at a Canadian museum. In it, the viewer can see scores of 1940-era gents and ladies, in their sassy fedora hats, classy suits and ties, and then, right there about three people deep, that dude.
What’s his deal? Is that a digital SLR he’s got just below his screen-printed tee? That face. His emotions are way to “meh” here compared to the others in the photograph. To the analysis!

    photoshop, duh

  6. @”youretards”

    Look at his screenprinted tee shirt. They didn’t make those in the 40’s. Look at his fucking *DIGITAL* SLR he’s holding. They didn’t make anything DIGITAL in the fucking 40’s. Stop getting pissed off at photoshopped pictures and go back to /soc/ where you belong, fatty.

  7. The glasses are real. The hipster is original. The style is authentic, pre-ironic actual timeline, 1940’s. Sorry to rattle anyones core foundations and/or belief structures there. Peace.

    PS. Wouldn’t that jumper logically have a W on it – not an M… if any letter, or perhaps a section of the timeless knitted Mom-sweater pattern, the zigzag (seen for example on the eponymous Charlie Brown)? Just a thought.
