A US library has confirmed the photograph of a girl who bears a striking resemblance to teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is authentic, but has ruled out time-travelling conspiracy theories.

The photograph, taken by Eric Hegg during the Klondyke gold rush in 1898, has been shared across the internet in recent days.

While some claimed time travel could explain the girl in the photograph's likeness to the Swedish teenager, others queried whether the image was photoshopped.

Goodbye, America: Greta Thunberg to Sail Again After Climate Talks Relocate

  Goodbye, America: Greta Thunberg to Sail Again After Climate Talks Relocate Greta Thunberg is sailing across the Atlantic, again. It’s much sooner than she had planned, but not before making her mark in the United States. Ms. Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish climate activist, was scheduled to set sail from Hampton, Va., on Wednesday morning. This time, she will hitch a ride with an Australian couple that sails around the world in a 48-foot catamaran called La Vagabonde and chronicles their travels on YouTube.

Updated: 20 Nov 2019, 17:35. GRETA Thunberg is a time traveller according to wild conspiracy theorists, after a 120-year-old photo shows After spotting a Greta lookalike in a photograph taken in Canada's Yukon territory around the turn of the 20th century, many were quick to point out striking

Greta Thunberg asks the 150 members and advisers in the U.K. Houses of Parliament. Five minutes into the journey, a man stops to ask if he can take a photo with the sleeping teenager, saying she Unlike most global figures, Thunberg doesn’t have a staff; her parents do what they can to maintain

In a blog post on Friday morning, the University of Washington, dismissed both claims as "most definitely not the case".

"As part of the UW Libraries Special Collections, the photo in question is an original," the post said.

So who is the girl in the photo?

We don't know.

The library record of the photo does not list the name of the girl or the two other children.

Hegg's caption simply read: "Youths operating gold mines on Dominion. Klondyke, YT".

There aren't any other details about the girl, which could fuel the mystique.

But it's likely the girl's name was never recorded as an important detail. It's also possible details about her were lost somewhere along the way.

"The Hegg collection came into the Libraries Special Collections in the 1960s, pre-dating modern record keeping that would illuminate more detailed information, such as who donated the collection, or prior ownership," the Washington University post read.

The image was taken at Dominion Creek, a remote location in Canada near the border with Alaska.

It was taken during the Klondike Gold Rush between 1897 and 1901, which saw more than 100,000 people flock to the region, hoping to strike it rich.

The population boomed, but many left when they found locals had already claimed the gold-bearing creeks for themselves. It's possible the girl moved on from Dominion Creek after the rush.

Where — or when — she went to next is the topic of wild speculation in comment threads.

Thunberg a time traveller?

The first rumours of Ms Thunberg's time travelling were whispered a few weeks ago, after Allison White noticed something remarkable about a historical photo she saw during a dinner at Pier 57, a popular dining hub in Seattle.

"We were leaving the restaurant and it's just a random hanging picture directly opposite of The Crab Pot," she said.

People think Greta Thunberg is a time-traveller thanks to this old photo

  People think Greta Thunberg is a time-traveller thanks to this old photo An uncanny lookalike has got the internet conspiring.Thunberg has yet to publicly comment on her position in the space-time continuum.

Twitter quickly decided it was most definitely Greta in the photo , noting that both girls even wear their hair in a similar side-plait: There's just one thing confusing me: If Greta did have the ability to travel , surely she would've picked a couple of decades The main takeaway of this time traveller business?

Ms. Thunberg believes people should act, not argue. That, perhaps, is why she is planning to travel to next month’s United Nations global warming summit in New Kids her age have not seen much of life. Her worldview might be unrealistic, her priorities out of balance. But in our time , and in her cause, that

"I glanced in the general direction and totally lost it — she stuck out, I knew immediately who the pictured child resembled.

"I'm a huge fan of Greta and everything she's doing."

The photo was shared and reposted on social media hundreds of thousands of times, appearing on news sites from CCN to People Magazine.

Author Jack Strange posed the time-travelling theory in a tweet that attracted more than 50,000 likes.

In a subsequent blog post, he speculated this time-traveller could have originally been on a mission to stop Leo Hendrik Baekeland, a chemist credited with pioneering modern plastics in the early 1900s.

"Clearly, she didn't kill the inventor of plastic," he wrote.

"So she had to move on somewhere new. Ahem, 2019."

He also pointed out Ms Thunberg's popularity appeared to come out of nowhere, "almost as if she flew into our space time continuum".

Ms Thunberg was yet to comment on the viral photo.

Some might say her silence on the issue is telling, but most others would argue it has something to do with the fact she is currently on a yacht headed for Portugal.

"Conspiracy theories aside, we are delighted that the collection is receiving attention because it underscores the historical importance of the images as well the unique role that Libraries and other archives play, not only in safekeeping, but in telling these stories, and ensuring accessibility," interim director for the UW Libraries Special Collections Lisa Oberg said.

Ms White told the ABC she thought the conspiracy theories were a bit of fun, hopeful the teenager's climate advocacy makes a difference.

"I hope the world will listen, not just to her, but to scientific facts," she said.

"The answers are in front of us, we just need our political leaders to jump on board."
