10. PINK LADY, THE GHOST OF GREENCASTLE

pink-lady-greencastle

This haunting photograph of a spectre in pink was taken at O’Hare Mansion in Greencastle, Indiana. After reports of paranormal activity in the mansion, Guy Winters and his friend Terry Lambert decided to investigate. They took multiple photographs of an upstairs window. This is what they saw when they developed the film. The mansion has since been demolished.

9. GRANDPA’S GHOST

An ailing grandmother was moved to an assisted living home, but if this photograph is to be believed, she was not left alone. Her husband, allegedly the man standing behind her in the photo, decided to keep her company. He had died thirteen years before.

8. A GHOST IN MANILA

An ordinary photograph taken in Manila in the Philippines. I wouldn’t blame you for thinking this is just another photobomb, or a double-exposure. But neither of the girls in the photo reported anyone coming nearby when the picture was taken, nor any other presence, and the photo was shot with a digital camera, ruling out double-exposure. Who, then, is the translucent figure holding the girl’s arm?

7. THE WOMAN ON THE BENCH

Bachelor's Grove Ghost Picture

This photograph was taken at Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery in Bremen Township, Cook County, Illinois in 1991 during a paranormal investigation by the Ghost Research Society. The small, abandoned cemetery is known to be haunted — perhaps one of the most haunted places in the Chicago area. A woman sits on a tombstone, staring out into the trees. She was not present when the photo was taken.

6. BOOTHILL CEMETERY GHOST

Terry Ike Clanton took this black-and-white photograph of a friend at Boothill Graveyard in Tombstone, Arizona. Dressed in old 1880s-style clothing, the two were trying to recreate the look of the Old West, as Clanton himself was a family member of the Clanton Gang, who fought at the gunfight at the OK Corral. When one of the photographs was developed, however, they found a mysterious figure lurking in the background, seemingly arising from a grave. No one else was around at the time the picture was taken.

5. THE GHOST OF FREDDY JACKSON

In 1919, a group portrait of a World War I squadron was taken at the HMS Daedalus training facility. All seemed normal, save for one extra face in the crowd — the ghostly visage of Freddy Jackson, an air mechanic who had perished in an accident only two days before.

4. THE HAMPTON COURT GHOST

In 2003, this image was captured by closed-circuit security cameras at the Hampton Court Palace in London, England. The fire alarms had sounded, indicating that one of the doors had opened. Guards rushed to the area, but found the doors closed with no one nearby. Only the ghostly figure on the camera footage, nicknamed Skeletor, provided any clues. Perhaps one of Henry VIII’s beheaded wives returned?

3. THE WATERTOWN GHOST FACES

In 1927, James Courtney and Michael Meehan were killed by gas fumes while cleaning a cargo tank aboard the SS Watertown. A freak accident. Caught en route between the Panama Canal and New York City, they were buried at sea and the ship sailed on. But days later, crew members reported seeing unmistakeable faces on the water’s surface — the faces of James Courtney and Michael Meehan. The captain took several photographs, and the one you see above contains their ghostly faces.

2. THE GIRL IN THE FIRE

November 19, 1905. A fire raged inside Wem Town Hall in Shropshire, England, engulfing the entire building and burning it to the ground. As it burned, one onlooker, Tony O’Rahilly, took several photographs from across the street. One contained something very shocking — a young girl standing in the doorway. No one at the scene recalled noticing the girl, nor did any of the firefighters.

1. THE BROWN LADY

Perhaps the most famous ghost picture ever taken is that of the Brown Lady of Raynham Hall. It was taken in 1936, and many claim it is in fact the ghost of Lady Townshend, who had been forcibly confined to the mansion by her husband until her reported death in 1726.

As the story goes, 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. Provand didn’t think anything would turn up on the photograph, as he didn’t witness the form on the stairs, but as you can see in the image above, they certainly caught something.
