Vote up the most convincing images that almost have you believing time travel is possible.

Would the discovery of modern people in old pictures be enough to convince the world, or even you, of the existence of time travel? If so, then you’re about to find out for yourself as you get a load of the following photographs, which some people claim are actually old photos of time travelers who were accidentally caught on film. In other words, some may believe this is proof of time travel.

Whether you believe these time travel photos are simple coincidences or eyebrow-raising evidence of the ability to chill in other eras is up to you, but along the way you’ll get the chance to get a look at some pretty interesting pictures – images weird enough to make even the boldest skeptic take a second look.

Among the following would-be time traveler pictures you’ll see some evidence of modern technology being used long before it was invented. You’ll also get the chance to pick a couple of folks in eerily modern clothing out of crowds of people who lived long ago and decide whether they were just super fashion-forward or travelers from another time altogether.

So strap on your time-traveling seat belts and get ready for a creepily modern blast from the past as you check out what some claim is evidence of time travelers who accidentally got caught on film. After all, if these people could do it, maybe there’s something to the idea? Maybe?

A Guy Checking His Phone On The Beach In The 1940s

A time-traveling tourist may have been spotted hanging out with beach-goers in Cornwall, England. In a photograph dated 1943, a man in a brown suit appears to be checking his phone in that all-too-familiar, hunched-over, squinty-eyed pose to which we all conform when checking those important playoff game scores and what our ex is up to on Instagram. Yet this was WWII-era – there were certainly no cell phones around. One skeptic surmised the bespoke man was probably just rolling a cigarette or something similar; regardless, he still looks a little odd in his dark suit, standing out among even the more modestly-dressed swimsuits of the day.
