Time Traveler? A man with a mobile phone in a 1943 photograph

(ORDO NEWS) — A 1943 photo of a man “talking on his cell phone” has gone viral on social media.

The journalists found out that this photograph was indeed taken in 1943 in Reykjavik, Iceland.

It depicts American soldiers, but this man in a white coat is definitely not a soldier and is clearly different from the other people in the photograph.

A man holds an object in his hand, raising it to his ear in the same way as mobile phone owners do. At the same time, he is with his mouth open, that is, obviously, photographed at the time of the conversation.

And next to him there is no one with whom he could talk, no one looks in his direction.

Social media users quickly concluded that the photo was of a time traveler who did not expect to be filmed.

“He’s standing alone, wearing a different headdress than the others and a different scarf, and he’s acting the way we would today, talking on a cell phone,” writes Christian Hoffmann, who first posted the photo.

There is definitely some kind of rectangular flat object in the man’s hand. And if this is not a smartphone, then what is it?
