Speaking of Scary...

Speaking of Scary... (see Breakdancing Godzilla blog), here are a couple of old photos I picked up in NYC that have a scary or ghost-like quality. The group portrait is labeled on the back "Mothers first family, Loie Jane Robertson John, Rey John, Verne John, Bruce John, Frankie John, all born in Gainsville, Texas." Poor Loie Jane looks startled enough with this brood; wonder if the poor thing had another whole batch where this photo was taken by "Zona Shick, Mound Valley, Kansas."
The second, single figure photo is labeled "Ruth Western" on the back, and to me the child seems to be levitating above the patterned carpet. What do YOU think?
