Will Thomas with an unidentified spirit

Creator: William Hope (1863 - 1933)

Date: c. 1920

Collection: National Media Museum Collection

Inventory no: 2002-5054/04

Blog: G is for ghosts... the birth and rise of spirit photography

 

A man's face appears in a haze of drapery on the right of the photograph. Thomas, a medium from Wales, did not recognise the superimposed image.

 

Thomas has signed the bottom of the photograph, 'Sincerely Yours Will Thomas' - perhaps this indicates a friendship with Hope.
