This is the most popular real ghost picture. Taken in 1936 during a photo shoot for Country Life magazine by Indra Shira, this famous real ghost picture of an apparition descending the stairs has been viewed round the world. Indra saw the white form taking shape and ordered his assistant to snap a picture of the staircase. His assistant, who did not see the white vapor, bet Shira that nothing would be in the picture - he lost five English pounds on the bet. The home this famous, real ghost picture was captured in is Raynham Hall in Norfolk. King George the IV of England and others had seen a ghost deemed the Brown Lady before this photo was taken. She has not been seen since this 1936 photo. The ghost is thought to be that of Lady Dorothy Townshend, wife of Charles Townshend, 2nd
