A photograph of a girl taken 121 years ago has gone viral and sparked rumours that teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is a time traveller who’s come back from the past to save the future.
The photo discovered in the University of Washington archives, shows three children fetching water from a well.
A girl in the foreground looks exactly like Greta.
The braids, the facial structure, the eyes – looks so similar! Also, the girl in the photo seems to be glaring, very much like the one Greta shot at US President Donald Trump in a video that went viral a few weeks ago.
Historians say the photo was taken around 1898 in Canada, at a gold mine.

So, ‘Greta Thunberg’ is in a photo from 120 years ago, and it’s my new favourite conspiracy. Greta’s a time traveller, from the future, and she’s here to save us. pic.twitter.com/5ObTjPFXvk

“How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” she said at the UN Climate Action Summit.
