The spirit photographs of William Hope

Sorry about the long wait my internet was shut down after I moved homes and didn't take the time to get internet until now. Anyway her are some photographs  of "ghosts".“These photographs of ‘spirits’ are taken from an album of photographs unearthed in a Lancashire second-hand and antiquarian bookshop by one of the National Media Museum’s curators. They were taken by a controversial medium called William Hope (1863-1933).

The Thomas family claimed that the image superimposed over the sitters was the only photograph of their deceased grandmother in existence. Hope, however, would have used an existing photograph of a woman to create the illusion.  The spirit photographs of William Hope
I know these aren't really ghosts but they are freaking scary to look over on at midnight.
