Art lovers spotted an iPhone in an 1882 museum engraving.
Engraving by R. Josey and James Archer titled “Betrothal of Burns and Highland Mary”, owned by New York’s The Met Museum of Art. It depicts the moment of engagement between the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns and his lover Mary Campbell, also known as Highland Mary. It was in this picture that museum visitors discovered an object similar to a smartphone.
The lovers stand on the bank of the Aire River and look into each other’s eyes, while each of them holds with one hand an oblong dark object with rounded corners, which resembles an early model of an iPhone.
