1. The Girl in the flames

On November 19th, 1995, Wem Town Hall in Shropshire, England was engulfed in flames and burned to the ground. As firefighters tried to stave off the inferno a town resident, Tony O’Rahilly, took pictures from across the street using a telephoto lens on his camera. There, rather clearly in one of the photos, is what looks very much to be a small girl standing in a doorway, with the brightness of the flames behind her. No one ever remembered there being a small girl present on scene, much less in that close a proximity to the fire. The photo and the original negative were turned over to a photo expert who decided that the picture was 100% authentic: “The negative is a straightforward piece of black-and-white work and shows no sign of having been tampered with.”  In 1677 a fire destroyed many of Wem’s wooden houses. The fire was said to have been caused by a 14-year old girl named Jane Churm, who had been careless with a candle. Churm died in the fire along with several others, and her ghost is said to still haunt the area. Whether there’s such a thing as ghosts or not, it must be said: if this is just a trick, an illusion of smoke and fire that happened to be captured on film, it is coincidence that it just so happened to appear in the form of a girl who also died in a terrible fire at the same location.


2. The lady on the Stairs

This photo was taken in 1936 at Raynham Hall in Norfolk, England, by two photographers of Country Life magazine. Raynham Hall was long reputed to be haunted by the ghost of Lady Dorothy Townsend, who died in 1726. It was rumored that her husband suspected her of having an affair and locked her away in a remote corner of the house until her death many years later. The ghost had been seen on many occasions throughout the years when it was spotted descending these stairs by the Country Life photographers, who quickly took a snapshot. This is considered by many to be the most highly regarded and reputable photograph of a ghost yet made.


3. Freddy Jackson

Taken in 1919, the photo show RAF Goddard’s squadron, who served in World War I but on closer inspection a spooky face can be seen in the back row, it’s believed to be air mechanic Freddy Jackson, who’d be killed in an accident two days earlier. Freddy Jackson’s squadron served on board the H.M.S. Daedalus. Freddy Jackson was killed in 1919 when an airplane propeller hit him. Two days later when the squadron assembled for a group photo, Freddy Jackson faithfully showed up, grinning behind the ear of a fellow comrade. His face was widely recognized in this photo by members of the squadron.


4. Grandpa

When a Grandson took a photo of his Grandmother, he didn’t expect to see his Grandfather stood behind her. After her passing the family went through the photos and for the first time noticed the man in the photo. She had lived on her own until age 94, when her mind started to weaken and had to be moved to an assisted living home for her own safety. At the end of the first week, there was a picnic for the residents and their families. A family member took this picture. It was taken on Sunday, 8/17/97, the man behind her is her husband who passed away on Sunday, 8/14/84.


5. The Monk

Taken at Newby Church in North Yorkshire in 1963 by Reverend K. F. Lord. This is one of the most famous and controversial photographs ever taken, some claim the photo is likely a fake as it’s almost too good to be real, yet experts who have examined the photo say the figure isn’t the result of a double exposure. The “thing” is calculated to be standing nine feet tall, and no one’s found any record of a monk that humongous ever being at Newby Church. Who is it? What is it? Trick of light or something else?

  1. That Freddy was still faithful to his squadron and that Grandpa is still looking after Grandma makes the related pictures comforting, rather than chilling.

  2. I think all the pictures are good, I went for the grandpa one as it is an up to date snap and the image of the grandpa was recognisable and I don’t think for one minute it had been tampered with

  3. I think the grandma one is compelling but you never know. I do believe in ghosts but I do not think you can take a picture of them I think these photo’s were double exposures. Are some took a picture and over and over to get it to look like that. The one that was supposed to be the monk that one looks like a tv ghost that someone made up. They all look fake. But then again I was not there, So who knows for sure, Good pictures though,

  4. the freddy jackson one would have to be my choice as the photo is too old to have been tampered with & i get the feeling that he was with his comrades.
