Arthur Conan Doyle Ghost Pictures!
Arthur Conan Doyle tested Medium Billy
Hope and his ghost picture process by
purchasing, opening, marking, and
inserting his own photographic plates into
Mr. Hope's camera.

After medium Hope took a picture with the
plates, Doyle removed them, developed,
and fixed them himself. The ghost
photograph of the author (at left) reveals a
foggy presence Arthur Conan Doyle called
"ectoplasm," purported evidence of spirit
presence. His critics called it "cotton wool."

If you look near the top of the ghost photo,
it looks like an eye above the three men,
one of which is Doyle.
