Yes. it is supposed to be sitting in the throne chair. But in the era when this pic is supposed to be taken they had to sit still for several minutes in order for the negative to develope. who says they started to take the pic and he just got up and left before the time had elapsed.

somehow, it looks like the whole ghost isnt there...not like the bottom half is just invisible, but like it's missing alltogether and he's sitting on just his torso O.o he's too far down for his butt and waist to be in proportion with the rest of his body.

Two things are interesting. I don't think this was meant to be a portrait of someone in the chair, because there is a lamp right in front of it. Second, the chair is out of proportion with the person. Either it is a very large chair or a very small man. And what is the focal point of the picture anyway?

I think there is suppose to be someone in the chair on the left, if you look at the arm of the chair you can see a white cuff of a sleeve, almost as if his arm is resting on the arm rest.

why is everything like in double, very suspect, remember spirit pictures were very new and yet very popular back then, so the butler was balding and moved from the chair while exposing the picture, and he looked like their departed master...........

This picture was supposedly taken using a long exposure during the time when everyone in the house was attending Lord Combemere's funeral. The house was supposedly completely empty. What I've always wondered is why would someone take this badly composed, badly focused photo of an empty room in an empty house. Shouldn't the photographer have been at the funeral?

SImple enough, (views picture) holy crap,....... Oh it's a slow developed frame. You could do it too if you had an early, pre-century camera

This has been explained in a TV show debunking fake ghost photos. The way this picture was taken was with a very slow exposure time. The person sat in the chair when the film was first exposed, then left. Still no ghost.

Good and valid points ozone! This pic is so unconvincing for me that I won't bother to waste any more time. I'm outta here!
