Try to guess the year a photo was taken. After about 40 tries my high score is 4621 -

1 - a hunting party in 1909. I was a year off, complete guess
2 - a Springsteen concert in 85, a year off
3 - an office photo in 89, a year off based on the style of computer
4 - a NYC street from 1977, 2 years off, educated guess based on fashions
5 - Trump as president, guessed exactly in 2018

My previous tries weren't as successful. I find the early 20th century difficult. And actually, the last 15 years are kinda interchangeable.

Post your high scores.

I've now confirmed that my perception of time is as poor as my time management.

I'm really terrible at identifying the early 1900's photo's. And I'm always surprised what technology I'm seeing in a photo from the first decade of the 1900's. Cool site. Not great for productivity though

I got a picture of a white Lamborghini Countach with some people wearing very bright windbreakers, I felt quite confident about my 1983 guess, site said the photo was from 1995. There's absolutely no way to figure some of these out

I vary from close to 5000 to zero. Some images give me almost no clues at all.

Neat game.

3rd time in got a 4485, which included 3 perfect 1000s- admittedly all pretty lucky as there was nothing anchoring them to a specific year but they sort of screamed 1992, 1988 and 1973 respectively

missed by about 5 years each in a 1918 beach photo and a 1930 photo of some random vehicles
