August 2nd, 1914. A crowd in the Munich Odeonsplatz celebrates the declaration of war. Adolf Hitler, a 25 year old unemployed artist is circled in the foreground.
but didn’t it turn out to be Hitler’s evil twin?
it’s hard to beat this as a turning point in history captured.

I am assuming this is photoshopped, especially given that in [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Hitler_with_other_German_soldiers.jpg|this photo] his moustache is different.

For a moment, I thought you were going to have David Tennant in the crowd, with one of his companions…

No, this isn’t photoshopped. It was validated in the book “Study in Tyranny” by Alan Bullock.

This picture has since been proven a fake. As on comment says, the mustache is completely from photos of Hitler shortly thereafter in his military uniform.
