Only a month late for Halloween. ;o)

This morning, I happened upon a Flickr group for "Vintage Spirit Photography". I didn't know such a thing existed. A few of these photos seem meant more for fun than anything else. Some feel like they were used as "dramatizations"/illustrations of spiritualism. But others. . . Having recently read To Say Nothing of the Dog, I wondered if these types of things were ever used to trick people who were seeking comfort after losing loved ones, and it appears that they were. (The ones with the "ectoplasm" coming out of people's noses, mouths, and ears are disgusting. So weird!)
