Re: Time traveller in 1938 footage
In the Chaplin video the person was using an old-school style hearing aid.
IIRC, it was newsreel footage of the premiere of a Chaplin film in 1928. The "time traveler" seemed to be a woman holding up a small clutch purse to shield her face from the camera. Just shy, I guess.
