The Ghost of Harry Price

6 posts in this topic

A strange story that may or may not involve Harry Price:

Most people know of Harry Price, the prominent ghost hunter of the first half of the 20th century. The controversial paranormal investigator died in March 1948.

At about the same time he died, a Swedish man known by the pseudonym `Erson' saw a figure appear beside his bed speaking English, which Erson could not understand.

The figure began to appear on a regular basis, so much so, that Erson picked up enough English to hold a conversation with the apparition. On one of these occasions Erson tried to photograph the figure, which appeared quite solid, but the photographs apparently showed nothing.

At a hospital where Erson was undergoing treatment, he discussed the matter with a doctor, who by good fortune happened to be interested in psychical research. From Erson's description the doctor identified the ghost as Harry Price.

There has never been any explanation as to why Price, if it were he, would appear in a foreign country, to an non English speaker, who had no interest in the paranormal.

Like I said, a strange story.

Tart!

I've heard this story as well.............and Price was supposedly seen wandering through the wreckage of Borley Rectory .... busy chap!

I think the problem here is that people tend to label ghosts strainght away.

A female figure is seen wandering along where a famous woman lived (say Anne Boleyn- spelling?) so people assume that it's her!!! Aaargh.......I can't put it into words - I'm too tired.....you know what I mean Cuffs.
