Backseat Ghost

back_seat_ghost_lg-copy1Creepy old photos are a guilty pleasure, and this site will feature many of them. Photos with back stories are even better. This shot was taken by Mabel Chinnery in 1959, near her mother’s grave site. After taking a few scenic shots of the cemetery, Mabel decided to finish the roll by photographing her husband, who was sitting alone in the car. When the roll was developed, they were both shocked to find Mother in her customary seat in the back. The print was later verified by several experts to be genuine and not the result of a reflection or double exposure.
