Conspiracy theory fanatics have been going mad after a woman was spotted using a mobile phone in a video from 1938.

The clip has left many scratching their heads and speculating that it must mean time travel really does exist.

In the video, captured in 1938, the woman can be seen walking in a crowd of people and she appears to be speaking into an object that she is holding to her ear, just like a phone.

You can make your own mind by watching it for yourself below:

The clip first started making the rounds on YouTube back in 2013 and, at the time, a YouTuber called Planetcheck claimed the woman was an aunt of theirs, Gertrude Jones.

Speaking about the video, Planetcheck said their aunt was 17 years old when the video was filmed and had been working in a factory at the time (via Yahoo).

They added: "I asked her about this video and she remembers it quite clearly. She says Dupont had a telephone communications section in the factory.

“They were experimenting with wireless telephones. Gertrude and five other women were given these wireless phones to test out for a week.

“Gertrude is talking to one of the scientists holding another wireless phone who is off to her right as she walks by."

This account has been reported on by a couple of big news outlets, but it’s hard to tell if the story has ever been verified.

Although, we must admit, it seems a lot more likely than time travel being real.

According to NASA, time travel is something that occurs every day, but not on the scale that we think of from films and TV shows.

They explained: “Although humans can’t hop into a time machine and go back in time, we do know that clocks on airplanes and satellites travel at different speed than those on Earth.

“We can’t use a time machine to travel hundreds of years into the past or future. That kind of time travel only happens in books and movies.

“But the math of time travel does affect the things we use every day, for example, GPS satellites.”
