PICTURE: WWI group pic

WWI group pic: A group picture of a World War I squadron was taken at the HMS Daedalus training facility in 1919.  Even air mechanic, Freddy Jackson (circled) showed up for it.  The only problem is, Jackson was killed in an accident two days before.

PICTURE: Woods Woman

Woods Woman: This photo was taken by Reverend R.S. Blance at Corroboree Rock near Alice Springs, Australia in 1959.  It wouldn’t seem double exposure, as the scenery behind and in front of her is not affected.

PICTURE: The Brown Lady

The Brown Lady: Known as the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall, this picture was taken in 1936, and many claim it may be the ghost of Lady Townshend.  The unfortunate woman had been effectively held prisoner in the mansion by her husband until 1726, when she supposedly died. Purportedly,  Indre Shira and Captain Hubert C. Provand were photographing the house when Shira saw a strange, misty figure gliding slowly down the stairs. They snapped the photo, capturing arguably the most famous ghost picture ever.


Priest: Taken in 1999 at Sefton Church in Merseyside, England, the photographer was fascinated by the building and said there was no one standing there when he took the picture.

PICTURE: Climbing the Stairs

Climbing the Stairs: In 1966, Rev. Ralph Hardy visited the National Museum in Greenwich, England. He snapped this photo while in the Queen’s House section of the Museum. The photograph and the negatives were examined by experts, including those from Kodak, and all have concluded that the negative was not tampered with nor is it a double exposure.

PICTURE: Church Parishioner

Church Parishioner: In 1964, Gordon Carrol captured this shot at The Church of St. Mary the Virgin in Northampton, England.  Many had reported seeing a ghostly figure that would show up during Mass praying.

PICTURE: Burning building girl

Burning building girl: The Wem Town Hall building burned to the ground in Shropshire, England on November 19, 1905. As it burned, witness, Tony O’Rahilly, took several photographs from across the street.  He captured the ghostly image of a little girl, of which nobody, including firefighters saw during the blaze.

PICTURE: Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery

Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery: This photograph was taken by the Ghost Research Society during a paranormal investigation at Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Bremen Township, Cook County, Illinois in 1991.  This is probably one of the best known ghost pictures out there.
