Does This Photograph of Linen Mill Workers From the 1900s Show the Presence of a Ghost?
Something's not right with this 1900s photograph.
Fifteen linen mill workers in Northern Ireland pose for a photo, but the result shows more than any photographer ever bargained for.
Even though the Belfast girls look composed and cheerful, none of them seem to notice the supernatural presence haunting a girl in the second row.
It appears a hand rests on the shoulder of the girl farthest to the right. But, who does the hand belong to?
The hand in such a position that suggests it came from a woman behind her -- however, every woman in the image have their arms crossed.
Is it an optical illusion or the pressence of a real ghost? The discernable fingers and nails suggest that it could not simply be a trick of the light.
"Great to see an old photo of my Granny, in the by-gone years photo, when she worked at the mill," the woman identified as Lynda wrote. "She was Ellen Donnelly (nee McKillop)."
Earlier this year, a guest to the hotel that inspired 'The Shining' also appeared to capture a ghastly image that would even startle Stephen King.
