    Looking at the picture on a normal screen I suspect they maybe correct, up to a point, and it maybe a clever 'photoshop' insert job, the focus and clarity on the girls face doesn't match most of the rest of the photo, but without the original negative who can say?

    Greta Thunberg circa 1898? If 121 years transpired since then, you'd hope she'd have polished a more distinct resume and skills bundle than what is apparent.
    Then again, her buzz circles Twitter and Facebook more than anywhere else; a lot of folks grasp at such things.
    Sans the www., a safe bet that majority would be asking "Greta who?"

    Regarding faces, there may be only so many to go around. Haven't we all have seen examples of certainly unrelated persons who look uncannily alike?
    Sincerely,

    If I ever find my doppelganger I'm going to hire him if I can or go to work for him which ever the case may turn out if he is at all anything like me it would be safe top state that either of us could use the help.

    Not to mention most every man wore a hat in those days, but but they also had mustache's to fill out the time period, not to say the Millennials will be left in the dust with their beards and black framed glasses today!

Skied extensively north and south in 70s...lived and worked South Lake in early 80s, emigrated to AUS 87...visited with mum, in her last year, in '01. The lake is part of my DNA...keep it well, mate...cheers

    Stec and Simmers were "computers" (mathematicians/programmers). Here they are two years ago: https://apgnews.com/community-news/a...ale-computers/
    I thought they were the distaff version of the Harmonicats.
