Eddie Murphy was ‘spotted looking dapper in the 1920s’
The next photo is that of comedian and actor Eddie Murphy, alongside a dapper-looking man.
The unnamed photo on the left is supposedly dated to the 1920s but the resemblance is so uncanny even the most staunch of critics would be forgiven if they were fooled.
But not everyone was convinced by the bizarre image and online sleuths proposed a number of plausible explanations.
Many online commentators have speculated the image was photoshopped, while others suggested it was a manipulated still from the film Life, which is set in 1932.
Jay – Z ‘photographed in 1939’s Harlem’
Another vintage picture that was snapped on the streets of Brooklyn, New York, shows what appears to musical sensation Shawn Corey Carter, popularly known as Jay-Z.
Officially, Jay-Z was born on December 4 1969 in Brooklyn, although the unearthed photo might cast some serious doubt on that part of his biography.
The 1939 photo was snapped in Harlem by photographer and activist Sid Grossman and was discovered after several decades by the Schomburg Center For Research In Black Culture at the New York Public Library.
