amongst a cloud of ectoplasm

At Flickr, '*Tom*' has posted family photos he discovered in an old suitcase. Spiritualism-era photos are quite rare, and groups of them such as Tom has found, that have been unpublished and uncirculated are even rarer. They are quite a treasure, and well worth checking out. About this particular photo, Tom writes, "Taken in 1920. My great grandfather was obsessed with this image, and I have found many sketches of this apparition." The group and other commentary can be found here http://www.flickr.com/photos/chough/tags/spiritualism/
