SPOT THE TIME TRAVELER

I hope THIS makes up for the "Cell Phone in Nanking" thing......

What do you think?

Is it possible? I mean, this is GOOD. That DUDE has Modern sunglasses, an "M" logo on his shirt, and ZIPPERS in an age when zippers were a luxury...

The name "Zipper" was popularized by B.F. Goodrich in the 1920's. Zippers were only used on Galoshes and Boots until the early 1930's.

Between 1937-1940, due to HEAVY marketing by Sears and Montgomery Ward, they became more popular than buttons on the front of slacks, but were NOT used to zip up jackets...

THAT did not happen until someone came up with the great idea of zippers that opened at both ends, in the late 50's or early 60's.

When would you say this photo dates from? 1935? 1937? 1940?

At LATEST 1940-look at the cars.

This guy looks DEVO....
