>Odd Victorian Factoid#21: W.H. Mumler was the first amateur Victorian photographer to take pictures of departed souls! Finally, proof! Uh, he was later prosecuted for witchcraft and for obtaining money under false pretenses. The ghosts would appears as smudges behind or beside the sitter. He swore up and down he didn’t tamper with the photographic plates. It was proof for believers and something else to scorn for skeptics.
