Sort of a strange little photo making its way around the internet..
- The painting is called Mr. Pynchon and the Settling of Springfield
- Mr Pynchon was a successful fur trader who founded Springfield, Massachusetts..
- The painting is from 1937..
- Most historians say the mystery object is a mirror - used widely in the 17th century
- But that isn’t stopping people from pondering if the mystery item is actually a smart phone!
- Look at the way he holds it! The way he stares.. Could it be an iPhone? or… maybe the other burning question.. An Android!?
