September’s Curiosity of the Month is a photograph from the J.R. Board collection. It captures a view of the tennis lawns in Pavilion Gardens in Buxton in 1939. However, there appears to be a pair of ghostly infants in the foreground. This rather creepy photo was noticed by my colleague, Jess, who sent it to Anna and I because we like strange things. Jess commented that it reminded her of Joseph Stalin’s attempts to erase people he didn’t like from photographs during his reign of the Soviet Union. It reminded me of numerous “visions of the paranormal” that I’ve seen in my other life as a writer of horror stories. I suspect that an accidental double-exposure from Mr Board is a more mundane explanation but the image is fun nonetheless.
