Two women with a spirit The face of a young woman appears over the woman on the right of the photograph. The reverse of the photograph reads: 'Why is the child always pushing to the front?' and 'Do we get messages from the higher spirits?'; perhaps questions the women wanted answering. One of the sitters, at Hope's request, has signed the plate for authentication. Collection of National Media Museum

Estelle Stead (note the correction of her name at the top). Her father, William T Stead, was a writer interested in paranormal subjects, who died on the Titanic.

There's a spirit photograph of Estelle Stead that looks like this woman only older.
