Anachronism by Investment Advisor

The February 3, 2010 edition of the Report on Business had this image of James Hymas, actually the image above is cropped from a larger photo that appeared in the physical paper, in a article about preferred shares, An investor with a preference for preferreds. What I found interesting is that everything in the photograph, the man at the desk with flowing beard, the desk, the Persian carpet, the fireplace, the suit look as through they are from 1899. When I asked several people to point out what doesn't belong it woulkd take them a while to find the laptop.

As a comparison here is the cover art to the book Guns of the South. Note the similarities a bearded man in a old style suit with something that wasn't manufactured in the 19th century.
