The topic of time travel has always been fascinating to humans. It’s probably due to the fact that we are just as fixated on the events of the past as we are of the future. Just imagine travelling to the past, reliving good memories and maybe changing some mistakes, wouldn’t that be rad?
Although scientists, experts and time travel enthusiasts have explored time travel possibilities, there is still no clear way we can actually do it. However, everyday we see new possible evidence of time travel in the past, continuing to taunt us.
Now, the internet is teeming with alleged evidence for the existence of time travel – both in stories and photographs. We’re going to present you with 12 of these stories. You can make up your own mind about whether they are real occurences of time travel!
Could it be possible?
Researchers from the University of Queensland in Australia simulated photons and moved them through time. These photons traveled through wormholes and had interactions with their older selves. This seems to be a new opportunity for a time travel theory that was once backed by Godel and Einstein. Watch DailyMail‘s simulation of the phenomenon below:
So is it possible? In quantum mechanics, yes. For humans on the other hand, we still need some highly advanced technology. Whether we’ll see time travel in action or not, we just love these little mysteries and the idea of travelling through time. So let’s see some “photographic evidence”!
#1 The Original Hipster
This hipster has been one of the most talked about instances of possible evidence of time travel. His get-up severely contrasts those of the people around him in the picture. The photo is dated circa 1940 at the reopening of South Fork Bridge in Canada. This is the first picture that intrigued me and pushed me to find more evidence and write this post.
The hipster appears to sport sunglasses, a modern-looking stamped (or silk-screened) t-shirt, a sweater and a camera. The image is said to be authentic and not in any way digitally altered.
Other aspects pointed out by time travel enthusiast include:
- His modern haircut
- His height; he stands taller than other people in the picture (reflects the height of people today as compared to the past)
Could this evidence be real? We don’t know, but it’s good to tickle our imagination from time to time.

#2 Ancient Watch
This little watch was discovered in an ancient tomb believed to be 400 years old and undisturbed in China. The watch was found in the soil surrounding the tomb with the hands stopped at 10:06. This watched is believed to be not more than 100 years old. This started the time travel news and speculation. How can this watch that is just a hundred years old max be embedded in the soil surrounding an undisturbed tomb dating back to the Ming Dynasty?
The mystery lives on.

#3 This Man Amongst Pioneers
The man encircled is from a photo published in the book “The Cape Scott Story” and was discovered by Jamie Grant. The photo is dated at 1917 and pictures several pioneers wearing typical clothes and hats from that time.
However this purported time traveler has uncovered, longer hair and no hat. A man to his left seems to be staring at him with disbelief. Maybe he suddenly appeared and startled the man next to him. Is this evidence of time travel or just another hipster amidst this group of people?

#4 Lady Clutching Her… Phone?
This woman featured in the opening scene of Charlie Chaplin’s movie “The Circus” in 1928 seems to be talking on a mobile phone while walking across the frame. In the clip that is circulating the internet, the woman doesn’t have any companion in the scene and seems to be having a phone conversation.
The portable mobile appeared in the 1980s, quite a long while after this film was shot. Many experts have been consulted as to the plausible behavior of the woman on the scene, but there seems to be no real explanation (except for one which says that she might be a time traveler).

#5 Vampire or Time Traveler?
This alleged time traveler showed everybody several photographs from different years including a current photo of himself. This man also claims he is a vampire and has puzzled many with his allegations. While these photos might look to be owned by the same man pictured, isn’t it possible that he just collected random photos that look just like him and passed it off as evidence of his time travel escapade? Real or hoax? Who knows, maybe these pictures are of his ancestors!

#6 Time Travelers in Artwork
This Greek artwork shows a woman who looks to be checking a laptop. Let us know in the comments what you think this might be portraying. Perhaps a mirror?

#7 Another Greek Artwork
Another Greek artwork here shows a man that looks to be using a stylus and a gadget. Whatever that is, it certainly looks like a laptop. He seemed so entertained, maybe he’s checking himself being featured on XenLife!

#8 Basiago on Gettysburg Address
This man named Andrew D. Basiago allegedly became part of a top secret government operation in the 1970s. Apparently he was a time traveler who was sent back to Abraham Lincoln’s famous speech in 1863. The young boy has lost his shoes in the photo. Basiago’s explanation is he lost his shoes in transit through the quantum plenum. So did he really hear Lincoln’s speech first hand or is he using this unknown boy as a way to stardom?
#9 Boy Texting
Was this boy fiddling with something or texting? This schoolboy photo from 1911 seems ordinary enough, however, if you look to the right you’ll see the boy we’re talking about! He seems to be using a phone, unimpressed by the once in a lifetime chance of having his photo taken (maybe he’s already got lots of selfies here in the future).

#10 Another Phone!
This woman is seen clutching a phone close to her ears and holding it close to her chest. She certainly stands out in the crowd and is believed to be a time traveler. It isn’t just the idea of the phone in her hand that makes her a famous suspected time traveler, rather, her actions mirror the modern body language of phone trotting individuals we usually meet in the streets today. Should we be convinced?

#11 Mohawk Time Traveler
This guy when seems to look a little out of place among the people around him. He has a Mohawk haircut in 1905 (popular in 1970s) and he’s wearing a white short sleeved shirt which is contrasted by the long sleeves in the picture. Was he too rebellious for his time, a man from the 70’s or a follower of NASA’s famous Bobak Ferdowsi?
You can zoom in the photo for a better look!

#12 Time Traveling Teacher
This guy from footage of an educational film clearly predicted the score of game 2 in 2010’s World Series. An sure enough in 2010 game happened that way exactly. See vid here.
Coincidence, prediction or perhaps time travel? We may never know, but we’re willing to keep our hopes up!
