Many believe it to be Lord Combermere himself, whose funeral was taking place at the time the photograph was taken. Fact or Fiction? You decide!
A Strange Photograph
As the funeral was taking place, some four miles away and with most of the staff and servants in attendance, Corbet set up the camera and took an hour long exposure. When it was developed she was shocked to find the image of a man sitting in the deceased Lord Combermere's favorite chair. Family (including Corbet) and staff all agreed that the apparition looked like the Lord Combermere.
What do you think?
Is it a ghost caught on camera?
Did someone sneak in during the exposure?
Is it a trick of the light and shadow – your brain interpreting it as a ghost??
