The Ghost in the Stereoscope.

Uploader comment: In his landmark 1856 book on 3-D photography, The Stereoscope, the optical scientist Sir David Brewster suggested: "For the purpose of amusement, the photographer may carry us even into the realms of the supernatural. His art enables him to give a spiritual appearance to one or more of his figures, and to exhibit them as "thin air" amid the solid realities of the stereoscopic picture."

Reminds me of a early 1900's magicians who had a ghost apears on stage during his show, the ghost was in fact a man in disguise who stood under the stage and by a complicated system of light, mirrors and glass apeared as a transparent entity on stage, i've seen early pics of it and you could'nt see it was fake,,,
