This photo of Rosalia Lombardo was taken in 1984. Why is that interesting? She was the last person buried in the catacombs of the Capuchin Monastery 64 years before this photo was taken, in 1920.

Example of a postmortem photo where eyes have been painted onto the girls eyelids so it appears her eyes are open and that she is alert.

Photo by Alice M. Boughton, ~ 1910... The woman on the left is deceased while the woman on the right looks to be holding her. They look to be sisters. This is a beautiful picture though.

Don't Blink? Near the center of Cedar Hill Cemetery is a large tombstone with a 3-D image of a baby's face carved on it. According to legend, if you stare at the baby's face for a while and then turn away, when you look back at the tombstone, the baby will be looking in a different direction. So make sure you take one last glance over your shoulder when you're walking away from this tombstone. Because you never know who, or what, might be watching you.

The Mysterious Sailing Stones of Death Valley. Geologists have yet to explain how rocks weighing upwards of 100 pounds seem to glide across the desert floor leaving tracks and indentations in their wake.

This is the creepiest one and what is on her lips?? Before their burial, the deceased would be photographed in their best clothes and 'posing' (propped up) with their living relatives. In some instances, eyes were painted onto the closed eyelids of the deceased to make them appear alive. In Victorian times when photographs were rare, this might be the only photo the family had of their dearly departed.

Woman and Baby with Ghost(s) Can you explain what that is over the baby seat? I cannot make it out. Miniature storm cloud? Horrible udder-shaped balloon?
