PostSubject: Tulip Staircase Ghost   Sun Sep 14, 2008 2:23 pm

Rev. Ralph Hardy, a retired clergyman from White Rock, British
Columbia, took this now-famous photograph in 1966. He intended merely
to photograph the elegant spiral staircase (known as the "Tulip
Staircase") in the Queen's House section of the National Maritime
Museum in Greenwich, England. Upon development, however, the photo
revealed a shrouded figure climbing the stairs, seeming to hold the
railing with both hands. Experts, including some from Kodak, who
examined the original negative concluded that it had not been tampered
with. It's been said that unexplained figures have been seen on
occasion in the vicinity of the staircase, and unexplained footsteps
have also been heard.
Interesting side note: This photo isn't the only evidence of
ghostly activity at the Queen's House. The 400-year-old building is
credited with several other apparitions and phantom footsteps even
today. Recently, a Gallery Assistant was discussing a tea break with
two colleagues when he saw one of the doors to the Bridge Room close by
itself. At first he thought it was one of the lecturers. "Then I saw a
woman glide across the balcony, and pass through the wall on the west
balcony," he said. "I couldn't believe what I saw. I went very cold and
the hair on my arms and my neck stood on end. We all dashed through to
the Queen's Presents Room and looked down towards the Queen's Bedroom.
Something passed through the ante-room and out through the wall. Then
my colleagues all froze too. The lady was dressed in a white-grey
colour crinoline type dress."

Other ghostly goings-on include the unexplained choral chanting of
children, the figure of a pale woman frantically mopping blood at the
bottom of the Tulip Staircase (it's said that 300 years ago a maid was
thrown from the highest banister, plunging 50 feet to her death),
slamming doors, and even tourists being pinched by unseen fingers.
