Ghost Pictures

These are just a few of the ghost pictures we have collected from around the internet over the years. As time goes by we will add more and more ghost pictures to the collection. We have seen hundreds and hundreds of pictures that are said to be ghost pictures. The truth appears to be that the majority of so-called ghost pictures can be explained away and essentially shown to be fakes. However,amongst those hundreds of ghost pictures there are a few that have really stuck in our brain and left us to think they really might be real ghost pictures. You have to make up your own mind but to us these are the most convincing ghost pictures we have found.


ghost picture

This is one of those ghost pictures where you have to look hard for a bit and then suddenly you see the ghost and you can't stop looking. This was an innocent picture taken on Christmas in the 1980's. It wasn't until after the pictures came back that one of the family members looked at the picture and saw that there was a man in the suit standing in the doorway. Their family picture turned into a ghost picture. None of the family know who the ghost belongs to but maybe he just didn't want to be alone on Christmas.


combermere ghost This ghost picture was taken in 1891 at the Combermere Abbey library in Cheshire in England. Lord Combermere died in 1891 after being killed in a horse and cart accident. This ghost picture was taken at the very moment his funeral was being held miles away. Yet, you can clearly see him sitting in the chair. The photographer reported that all of his family were attending the funeral so it was impossible for the person in the photo to be any of them. Making this a very old ghost picture, indeed.
tulip staircase ghost England is a real hot spot for early ghost pictures. After all, with as much history that England has there is bound to be a ghost or two hanging around. This ghost picture was taken in Greenwich, England in the Queen's House portion of the National Maritime Museum. Many royals were born and spent time in this house so there would have been a lot of people moving around the house when it was in active service. This ghost picture was taken in 1966 by a clergyman from Canada. The ghost is holding onto the railing of the staircase that is known as the Tulip Staircase.
ghost photo In 1959, Mabel Chinnery decided to pay a visit to her mother's grave. As many people do, she decided to take pictures of the grave and also took a picture of her husband who was waiting for her in the car. He was on his own in the car but when the ghost picture was developed Mabel was amazed to see her mother sitting in the back seat of the car.
boothill ghost picture

One of the more recent ghost picture but it looks older than it really should look. This is because this ghost picture was taken in Boothill Graveyard in Arizona. This is the part of the country that would have seen action between the likes of the Earps and Doc Holiday. The photographer had taken his friend and dressed him in 1880's clothing in attempt to take a black and white 'period' photo. After the film was developed they noticed the man in the background. The photographer swears there was nobody else in the graveyard other than him and the subject of the photograph. It almost look as if the ghost in the ghost picture is on lookout and was watching the pair closely to make sure they stayed in line.


child ghost picture

Wem Town Hall in Shropshire in England was built in the early 1900's but sadly in 1995 there was a fire and the building was burned to the ground. One of the people from the town grabbed his camera and took pictures of the historical event that was taking place in front of him. When he looked at the pictures later he clearly saw an image of the a little girl standing in a door way of the burning building. The heat from the fire would have made it too warm for an living child to be in the property. In his search to find out who the girl in his ghost picture might be the photographer discovered that in 1677 a large portion of Shropshire had been destroyed by fire when a blaze was sparked off in the timber houses of the time. According to legend a little girl called Jane Churm was thought to have been the person that started the fire when her candle set a thatched roof on fire. It is now thought by many that it the ghost of Jane Churm that appears on this ghost picture.


bachelor grove ghost


This is another recent ghost picture. It was taken in 1991 at the Bachelor's Grove cemetery located in a suburb of Chicago. The cemetery has long been thought to be one of most haunted graveyards in the world. Due to this it was the location of a ghost hunt evening on this night in 1991. With the exception of the people on the ghost hunt, the cemetery was empty but when the photos were developed the image of this woman was seen sitting on a grave. She was dressed in very out of date clothing and was certainly not a member of the group.
ghost picture This railway crossing in San Antonio, Texas was the scene of a horrific accident where a number of school children were killed. Ever since then the ghosts of the children have been said to wander up and down the tracks. One of the locals was able to capture this image one night. The ghost in the ghost picture is certainly that of a child.
ghost picture Reverend Lord took this ghost picture of a ghost at the alter of Newby Church in Yorkshire, England. The ghost picture was taken in 1963 and despite many investigations by photography experts it has yet to be shown to be anything but a real ghost picture.
baby ghost picture The 17 year old daughter of an an Australian woman died in 1945. On a visit to her daughter's grave in 1947 the mother took a picture of the grave and was shocked to find the image of a baby sitting on her daughter's grave. She had no idea how she had managed to take a ghost picture of who the child would be. To her best memory there wasn't anyone else around the grave but herself. Some time later, in 1990 a paranormal expert visited the area and found that there were the graves of two babies located next to the grave of the 17 year old. Maybe they just wanted to come out and play. In the end they showed up on a ghost picture and get to live forever.
