    She will never admit it, but Gretta is a time traveler from the future who keeps coming back to save us. She was last came here in 1898 when child labor was common, and she stayed here until 1938 when the congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act, which she was instrumental in passing. Here is a picture of her soon after her arrival in 1898

    Congratulations on learning to use Photoshop.

    Was there a point to your etch-a-sketch project?

    Thank you, but there is no photo manipulation there, and certainly not from me. That is an actual photo from 1898.


    Greta Thunberg lookalike appears in Yukon gold rush photo from 1890s
    SWEDISH PHOTOGRAPHER CAPTURED THE GOLD RUSH

    The photo is actually part of a large collection from Swedish photographer Eric Hegg, who documented the Alaska-Yukon gold rush as the 19th century turned into the 20th.

    Kinsey says that the set was one of the first collections the school ever received. She dubbed it one of the “core collections” the university has on the gold rush.

    “He, along with a lot of photographers, went up and dragged their equipment by dogsled, by boat,” Kinsey said. “He took various aspects of the gold mining -- that big adventure, the big explosion of gold-seekers.”

    According to the university’s page on Hegg’s life, during the summer of 1898, he and his brother Peter made their way up the Yukon River to document the stampede of prospectors.

    “Before Hegg left in June, he turned the majority of his work which was produced in the British Columbia town of Bennett over to the photographer Edward Hamacher who later relocated to Whitehorse,” the site explains.

    The biography adds that many of the photographs were developed under “arduous circumstances,” which included a travelling darkroom in the bow of a specially-designed small boat.

    The old black and white pic is low quality compared to today;s pics. The pig tails may be tricking us into thinking they are more alike than they really are. An illusion of sorts.

    Interesting picture. Is that a dog with a monkey's face on the left of the time traveler? And what's with the midget standing to the right with the short arms? Strange.
