Sometimes they hide in the shadows.
Sometimes they hide in the light.
We spy with our ghostly eye
Maybe something on the left and the right.

Buried at #elcamposanto Cemetery, Thomas Tanner was the leader of a traveling theatrical group called the Tanner Troupe. They performed on the 2nd floor of the #whaleyhouse and shortly after their opening night, Tanner died. His spirit is said to still haunt the old theatre.

Stare at the dot in the skeleton's nose cavity for 30 seconds. Then look at a white surface or close your eyes and look up at the ceiling. Does the skeleton reappear?

From Spectropia; or, Surprising Spectral Illusions (1865), a wonderful book of Victorian hi-tech ghost conjuring which allows the reader to summon, as the sub-title proclaims, “ghosts everywhere and of any colour”.
