Time Traveler?

There has been some internet discussion about the possibility of time travel because of this image.

Captioned: Three children operating rocker at a gold mine on Dominion Creek, Yukon Territory, ca. 1898

Close up…

Now don’t that look like our misguided teen activist, Greta Thunberg? Did she come back from the dead? Did she time travel? Is this her ancestor?           I dunno… You tell me!

I'm from Pensyltucky. Can trace my ancestry directly to whom the present day national anthem of Poland is written about.

  1. This is fake news.

    People get so confused by the long lifespan of various alien species they always jump to incredible time travel theories!

  2. I am a time traveler but I can’t figured out how to make a U-turn and the gauge is getting closer to E.

  3. G.D.:
    Seriously now, very interesting coincidence.

    Well, we know that many Scandinavian immigrants to the US settled the upper Midwest in the nineteenth century.  A couple of generations later, some of them fetched up on the northern West Coast.  Then gold was found in the Yukon, so some of them joined the trek up there.

    So Gold Prospector Girl is pre-melting-pot American ethnic Swedish, let’s assume.  Thunberg is non-melting-pot Sweden Swedish.  The US melting pot has been bubbling along for several generations since 1898, with the result that this image really stands out for us; in our eyes it is notable.

    Thanks for putting this up.  That’s quite the gold mining operation there!

    EXCELLENT ANALYSIS jzdro

    We appreciate in depth analysis like you just gave! IMHO; somewhere along the DNA tree, I’ll bet there was a relation.
