- double exposure is a technique in which a piece of film is exposed twice, to two different images. The resulting photographic image shows the second image superimposed over the first. The technique can be used to create ghostly images or to add people and objects to a scene that were not originally - vintagemodernphotography.com/Virginia
- spirits really used to do this much more at the beginning of photography history. They don't use to do it as frequently as before exactly because of the popularization of editing techniques (such as double exposure).

Date: c. 1920

A face appears over the man's image on the left of the photograph, covered in a cloak. Although indistinct, the man apparently identified the 'spirit' as an ex-work colleague who had died thirty two years earlier.
