Ghost Photos


The National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England



This photograph was taken in 1966 by Rev. Ralph Hardy, a retired clergyman. Taken in the Queen's House section of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England he only intended to take a photograph of the elegant spiral staircase, known as the 'Tulip Staircase' but when the photograph was developed a shrouded figure was revealed to be climbing the stairs, seeming to hold the railing with both hands. Expert opinion, including some from Kodak, is that the original negative has not been tampered with. It is also said that the unexplained figure has been seen on other occasions in the vicinity of the staircase, along with unexplained footsteps.



R.A.F. Airmen



This bizarre photo of R.A.F. Airmen was taken in 1919 by Sir Victor Goddard. A strange figure can be seen behind one of the airmen and has been identified by the airmen as that of fellow airman Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who had been killed two days earlier in an accident involving an airplane propeller.



The Brown Lady at Raynham Hall, England



This photo was taken in 1936 by photographers Captain Provand and Indre Shira while shooting for Country Life magazine. Taken at Raynham Hall in England it seems to show what looks like a lady walking down the stairs. Although the photograph has been scrutinised by experts it has never been proved as a fake. It is believed by some to be the ghost of Lady Dorothy Walpole who once lived at the Hall. Officially she died of smallpox but it is also rumoured that she was murdered by her husband after learning of an affair.
