Famous Ghost Photos

The Brown Lady


Probably the most famous ghost photograph, the ghost is believed to be the ghost of Lady Dorothy Townshend, wife of Charles Townshend, from the early 1700s. According to legal records she died and was buried in 1726, but rumors say that Charles suspected Dorothy of infidelity and that he locked his wife in a corner of the house until she died.This ghost is rumored to haunt the oak staircase, beside beds of visitors, standing in the hall, and always described as wearing a brown dress, her skin glowing and pale and eyes gouged out.

The photo was taken in September, 1936 by Captain Provand and Indre Shira, two photographers who were assigned to photograph Raynham Hall for Country Life magazine. Read more:  http://paranormal.about.com/od/ghostphotos/ig/Best-Ghost-Photos/The-Brown-Lady.htm

Mabel Chinnery was visiting her mother’s grave in 1959. She brought her camera to take photos of the gravesite. After a few shots of her mother’s gravestone, she took a photo of her husband waiting alone in the car. When the film was developed, they saw that he’d not been alone. Right behind him in the back seat you can see a figure wearing glasses. Mabel recognized the image of her mother right away – the woman whose grave they visited that day-

A photo expert examined it and deemed it was not a reflection or a double exposure. “I stake my reputation on the fact that the picture is genuine,” he testified. Read more: http://paranormal.about.com/od/ghostphotos/ig/Best-Ghost-Photos/The-Back-Seat-Ghost.htm


Ghost in Bachelor’s Grove



This photo was taken by the Ghost Research Society (GRS) On August 10, 1991, while investigating Bachelor’s Grove, a small, abandoned graveyard on the edge of Forest Preserve in Illinois. One of the most haunted cemeteries in the U.S., Bachelor’s Grove has been the site of over 100 different reports of strange phenomena, including apparitions, unexplained sights and sounds, and even glowing balls of light.

“GRS member Mari Huff was taking black and white photos with a high-speed infrared camera in an area where the group had experienced some anomalies with their ghost-hunting equipment. The cemetery was empty, except for the GRS members. When developed, this image emerged: what looks like a lonely-looking young woman dressed in white sitting on a tombstone. Parts of her body are partially transparent and the style of the dress seems to be out of date.” Read more: http://paranormal.about.com/od/ghostphotos/ig/Best-Ghost-Photos/Madonna-of-Bachelor-s-Grove.htm






Mrs. Andrews visited the grave of her daughter in a cemetery in Queensland, Australia in the 1940’s. Her daughter had died about a year earlier, at the age of 17. Mrs. Andrews saw nothing unusual when she took this photo of Joyce’s grave.

When the film was developed, Mrs. Andrews was shocked to see a small child sitting happily at her daughter’s grave. The ghost seemed aware of Mrs. Andrews since it is looking directly in the camera.

Mrs. Andrews said there were no children nearby when she took the photo and did not recognize the child, nor did she believe it was the ghost of her daughter as a child.

an Australian paranormal researcher visited the cemetery in the late 1990s to investigate. Near Joyce’s grave he found the graves of two infant girls.

Old Mc-Ghost Had a Farm?


“This photo was taken by photographer and graphic designer Neil Sandbach in 2008. Neil was shooting some scenic shots at a farm in Hertfordshire, England, as part of a project for wedding stationery where a couple was planning to have their wedding ceremony.

Neil was astonished when he examined the digital photo on his computer and saw a ghostly, white, almost glowing figure of what looks like a child. Neil says he is quite sure there was no one there at the time.

Neil showed the couple the photo, and before the wedding, not mentioning the photo, the couple asked the staff at the farm if they had had any spooky experiences there. Indeed, the staff admitted that the figure of a young boy, dressed in white night clothes, had been seen on several occasions around the barn.

Apparently, this is the ghost that Neil photographed.” Read More: http://paranormal.about.com/od/ghostphotos/ig/Best-Ghost-Photos/Tewin-Bury-Farm-Ghost.htm
