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.

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 Townshend, 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.

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.

After her passing the family went through the photos and for the first time noticed the man in the photo.

It was taken on Sunday, 8/17/97, the man behind her is her husband who passed away on Sunday, 8/14/84.
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?

Legend has it Chloe was a slave in the house of the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana who had a bad habit of listening at keyholes to the goings on of the residents. Caught one day in the act by the Master of the house, he lopped off her ear as punishment, forcing her to wear a green scarf over her head to cover the wound. As punishment, she baked a cake with oleander leaves, a common plant in the south that is immensely poisonous. Though the master of the house was her target, her victims became his wife and two daughters, who died in agony a couple days after eating the cake. Chloe fled the house and was lynched by field slaves on the plantation for the wicked light she cast on the rest of them.

Toys R Us Ghost
This shot was taken under carefully controlled circumstances with numerous witnesses present, making fakery especially difficult.

There’s a story that in 1869 a young man died at the location where the store now stands from an accidentally self-inflicted axe wound.
