Who is the ghostly girl in the burning building?
In 1677 it appears a fire destroyed much of the town of Shroppshire, England and killed the young girl, Jane Churm, who was said to have set fire to an old thatched roof with a candle – quite accidentally. Legend has it her ghost has haunted the area for centuries, having been seen by different witnesses.
Could the girl be Jane Chum?
Neither O’Rahilly nor any of the other onlookers or firefighters recalled seeing the girl there, and further examination of the negative proved the ghost picture to be authentic and not tampered with. No girl was reported missing after the fire, either.
This is one of FTN’s favourite ghostly pictures… enjoy
