This was an exhibit in the Lincoln park zoo in Chicago. I don't know when it was removed, but it was considered a cruel way to display bears, you can tell they don't look all that happy. That polar bear at the bottom looks real sad. I don't know if they replaced it with a different bear exhibit or just left it out. While I did try to use google maps to walk around, the only thing that was recognizable was some of the fencing.
Did you find the time traveler in this? Now and then you will find one but nothing this obvious. He is staring right into the camera, the only one. And the only one dressed in very casual clothes, almost has a vibe that he is from the 1940's or 1950's. He just doesn't fit in, and would love to know what his story was. Like if he went back in time, why to go the zoo? And if he's from this time, why is he dressed like a neat slob?
