It’s said to have been taken by an American photographer in Brooklyn’s Union Square in 1936.

But eagle-eyed believers think they’ve spotted something out of the ordinary for the era.

The man in the foreground of the snap appears to be holding a device to his ear that bears an extraordinary resemblance to a mobile phone.

Conspiracy theorists are saying it must mean the man, who is dressed the same as the other pedestrians, is a time traveller.

Perhaps that is the case or, more logically, the man was holding something else to his ear.

Or maybe he had a very itchy head!

After all, this wouldn’t be the first time an historic image has caused a stir among time travel believers in recent weeks.

Conspiracy theorists were left in a spin after spotting a strange feature in a 1940s photo that they claim proves time travel is real.

The seaside snap shows a fleet of Brits escaping the realities of World War II with a day at the beach.

In the centre of the image, a man in a brown suit can be seen glued to an object in his hand that looks suspiciously like a smartphone.

As well as questioning his outfit choice, social media users became embroiled in a fierce debate over what was preoccupying the bloke.

He was quickly dubbed the “texting time traveller” after many pointed out he appeared to be scrolling through a mobile phone.

Bonkers theories also started to swirl regarding an ancient Greek tombstone after people spotted a woman using a laptop.

They claimed it was proof that a time traveller took a portable computer back to when the marble relief was sculpted in 100BC.

It came after art fans were baffled at a woman “holding an iPhone” in a painting from the 1860s.
