Is it just me, or does he look surprisingly similar to David Tennant ("Doctor Who")?

Speaking of time travel through photography, my favorite photographs are the early and mid 1930’s German color photographs of the rise of Hitler before WWII. Many were taken on excellent film, far superior to anykthing we had at the time, and they show almost exactly what things looked like then, making them almost vividly current. Nothing works quite as well as color for that.
