I would not take a decent photo as a child. Ever the troublemaker, most toddler pictures feature me squirming, sticking my tongue out or both. (My parents have one studio shot where I even managed to stick it out just enough so no one noticed until our prints arrived.) Usually it’s difficult to manage an unruly child without a parent in the photo, but moms in Victorian times had a solution: just hide under a blanket! And the results were eerie. Check out this gallery of spooky-looking “ghost mother” photos and decide if these moms picked a good tactic or not!
While it’s interesting to see these relics of years past, it totally looks like specters from the underworld are rising up to steal these kids. Though some of these kids look like they want to steal my soul, so maybe it’s appropriate. Head on over to the source to see more strange shots! [via io9]
