Victorian Birthday Ghost Picture

This Victorian birthday party ghost picture was purchased from Jerry at The Auction Gallery and is a fine example of how Victorian photographers would create these "spirit pictures" upon request. In this birthday photo, most of the kids were likely moved out of the picture to create this effect through a timed exposure.

"The image is from the early 1900's of a Victorian birthday with children all about and they appear in a ghost like fashion. What a fantastic early Americana image!"
