The Huffington Post article is here: Jay-Z, Time Traveler? Man In Vintage Photo Bears Resemblance To Rapper

I know I’m way behind on posting this, as it has already been around the internet and back (at least a few million times) this week.  But I still thought it was funny just the same.  A 1939 photo taken in Harlem by Sid Grossman, which has been confirmed as coming from the New York Public Library’s Schomburg Center Collection, bares an uncanny resemblance.

How cool would it be to find a photo of your historical doppelgänger?

    Nice. Speaking of celebrity doppelgangers, have you seen Amy Poehler’s 1934 Cosmo cover?
