Eagle-eyed Twitter users spot 'time traveller using mobile phone' in 1940s Cornwall beach photo during World War II

Written by admin

A TIME traveller has turned up in a 1940s beach photo… using a MOBILE .

The fella in a scruffy brown suit can clearly be seen in the middle of the snap, taken during the Second World War, peering into what looks like a phone.

 Stuart Humphryes posted the colourised picture of what looks like a man in a brown suit using a mobile phone on a beach in Cornwall in 1943

Around him are dozens of beachgoers soaking up the last of the summer rays in September 1943.

The image was taken on Towan Beach, Cornwall, and posted online by Stuart Humphrys, who initially didn’t spot the man out of time.

He tweeted: “British war workers escape to the seaside – this Cornish beach was photographed in September 1943."

But as soon as he posted the seaside shot, Twitter users pointed out that it had a very unusual scene among the rolled up trousers, panama hats and deckchairs.

Getting the date wrong, South London History replied: “Er…is it just me or is this guy checking his phone…..in the 1950s?”

Dr Kevin Purcell added: “Good catch. It’s clearly the man in the shot is a time travelling tourist checking his mobile device.

“Finally the evidence we need that time travel is real.

Gerald Jackson added: “Shows how much beachwear has changed!

 Dr Kevin Purcell claimed that the snap proved that 'time travel is real', but others were more sceptical

“Jacket, tie and hat? Mind they did that when I was a kid in the 50s.”

But Mr Humphrys wasn’t convinced, saying: “I think that chap is rolling a cigarette!”

It’s not the first time eagle-eyed photo buffs have spotted creepily modern devices in grainy old snaps and film footage.

In 2010 a phone user was caught in an old Charlie Chaplin film and was dubbed a time traveller by those who watched it.

George Clarke, a Belfast filmmaker, saw the eerie sight and posted the clip to YouTube.

And earlier this year, a man claiming to be a time traveller on a mission from the year 6491 passed a lie detector test.

He came with a chilling warning for mankind, insisting that the Yellowstone volcano in America would "devastate the entire United States".
