This article will be covering the famous ghost image shot at Fanham Wood Mill in early January, 1929. Is this a true paranormal image or nothing but a clever fake?
Let’s take a closer look…
The Ghostly Image
The photograph was snapped by builder, Robert Walsh, in 1929, when he decided to take a reference shot of the staircase, for carrying out his work off-site.
Walsh later insisted that he didn’t feel anything strange when he was taking the photograph, but his trusty companion, his dog, was ‘playing up’ in the vicinity of the staircase that afternoon.
He was the only worker on-site that day.
Work at the wood mill carried on for several weeks, and no other paranormal activity was recorded.
As with most paranormal photographs, that end up online these days, there are a number of discrepancies linked to this image.
You have to remember that it was taken in 1929, so those linked to the development and production of the photograph are long gone!
The main dispute at the time of writing this, seems to be about the actual location the image was taken – most people believe it was snapped in America, but there are people out there who claim that it was taken in the UK!
The spelling of the location doesn’t really help matters, due to the lack of info on the photograph – some believe it is Fanham Wood Mill whilst others claim it is ‘Farnham’.
Closer inspection of the image shows a woman heading upstairs slightly looking to her right. Her hair is pinned back, in an old fashioned way, and she is wearing a period collar to cover her neck area.
So what do you think?
Does this look and ‘feel’ like a real paranormal image?
