London Underground Ghost
London Underground Ghost Photo.
This is a very strange and mysterious photograph taken by Karen Collett on the Bakerloo Line, London, in the early 1980's. As she took a picture of her family in the train, this eerie image appears reflected in the glass of a man strapped in an electric chair with blue sparks shooting out from his hands. As this photo was taken with a 'point and shoot' 110 camera, the possibility of the image being faked is very unlikely.
A wax figure of Bruno Hauptmann, who was accused of the kidnap and murder of the Lindbergh baby, is in Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum and shows him in the electric chair. The image is identical to the one in Karen's photo, except there are no blue sparks in the Museum exhibit.
Despite many sceptic's claims that it must have been a poster in the Underground tunnel that caused this effect, Madame Tussaud's can find no record of any such poster ever being manufactured.
The London Underground Ghost Photo was featured in a recent ITV television program on Ghosts of the Underground.
