For Sale: Legendary Photographic ‘Proof’ of Fairies and Gnomes:

In Summer and
Autumn of 1917, teenage Elsie Wright and her adolescent
cousin, Frances Griffiths, borrowed a glass-plate camera from Wright’s father
and tromped to Cottingley Beck,
in West Yorkshire. They photographed each other on the bank of the stream and
in the grass of a sun-dappled glen—and also captured some special guests.

One image shows Griffiths, looking wistful, chin in hand,
with a cavorting troupe of fairies. In another, a smiling Wright greets a gnome
high-stepping through the grass.

Inside a Victorian Photo Shoot at Stonehenge

Inside a Victorian Photo Shoot at Stonehenge:

The image above, which was recently made
public by the photo research company TimePix
, is from 1867, and is part of
the first known photographic sequence ever taken of Stonehenge. (There are
older individual photographs, in the Royal Collection.) It’s from a book
called Plans and
Photographs of Stonehenge
, released by the U.K.’s Ordnance Survey and
written by the department head, Colonel Henry James.

Since the Ordnance Survey began in the late 18th century,
its workers have used
various tools
 to get the nation down on paper. In the 1860s, much of
the agency’s energy was focused on mapping all of Great Britain, county by
county, at six inches to the mile. As James’s preface explains, Plans
and Photographs of Stonehenge
 was made for the agency’s officers, to
prepare them for encounters with any “Objects of Antiquity” that they
might come across during their work, as well as to “stimulate them to make
Plans and Sketches.”

“It was a very gentlemanly pursuit to have an
interest in archaeology, or antiquities as they called it back then,” says
TimePix founder Elaine Owen. James didn’t want his employees to come across an
ancient treasure and mess up how they measured it.

Inside Britain’s most haunted prison which held infamous gangster Reggie Kray:

The spooky snaps were taken by an urban explorer known as
The Elusive who claimed to have felt the presence of the many executions that
took place there.

They said, “It is damp and windy and quiet with doors and
corridors everywhere while footsteps, voices and door hinges could be heard
from a long distance away. It’s sad that a lot of people were executed there
and, given the age of the prison, you can really feel it. The prison existed
long before burial laws so I wouldn’t be surprised if there were unmarked
graves all over the complex.”

The Phoenix Lights were a mass UFO sighting …

The Phoenix Lights were a mass UFO sighting which occurred in Phoenix, Arizona, USA and Sonora, Mexico on Thursday, March 13, 1997. Lights of varying descriptions were reported by thousands of people between 19:30 and 22:30 MST, in a space of about 300 miles (480 km) from the Nevada state line, through Phoenix, to the edge of Tucson. There were allegedly two distinct events involved in the incident: a triangular formation of lights seen to pass over the state, and a series of stationary lights seen in the Phoenix area. The U.S. Air Force later identified the second group of lights as flares dropped by A-10 Warthog-aircraft that were on training exercises at the Barry Goldwater Range in southwest Arizona.

Although, many people think that was a cover up. The Governor of Arizona at the time, was one witness to this incident. As governor, he ridiculed the idea of alien origin,

but later he told people that the lights seems “otherworldly”. He admitted he saw

the UFO lights years later. (Via: YouTube / Wiki)

 3D Sonogram Reveals Much! Hello. My name is Charity. In March 2011, I lost my father. We had many discussions about the paranormal and I always thought it was crazy. He proceeded to tell me that after he dies, he will appear to me, somehow, someway. Before he died, my son and his wife had their first child. My dad went to the hospital a couple times to see the baby. She was born in February 2011. Not a month later, he passed. Now my son and his wife are expecting again. She recently had to get a 3D sonogram because the baby wasn’t as developed as the doctors would have liked, that and my daughter-in-law has diabetes, which is another reason why they had to do the 3D sonogram.

She was with her mother at the time of the sonogram and didn’t see anything strange or out of the ordinary. They got in their car to leave and her mother wanted to see the printed out pictures of the new baby. As she took a glance at the picture, she noticed there was a man in the picture. After my daughter-in-law started looking at it, she recognized the man in the photo and said it looked like her husband’s grandfather that passed away.

After she had called me and told me about this picture, she sent me a copy on my phone. Sure enough, it looks just like my father. I went to their home and seen the original picture, and it is in 3 or 4 of them! I am now a believer.

I am enclosing one of the sonogram pictures and a picture of my father.

In the nineteenth century, a morbid and curious custom has spread to various parts of the world: the photos were Post Mortem.
Post Mortem comes from Latin, meaning after death.

The photos Post Mortem apparently originated in England, when Queen Victoria asked to photograph the corpse of an acquaintance or a relative, so she can keep as a souvenir.
soon after, this idea spread around the world, keeping a morbid reminder of loved ones that have passed on.

Even today, as strange as it may seem, some places still have this custom

The girl who is standing in the photo is the one who is dead. This is a classic example of photographic art. Notice the hands. 

For people wondering how the corpse is standing up, there is a posing stand supporting the body it’s very hard to see but the stand is supporting the neck, arms and back.
