The second link certainly highlights that the pictures are very similar.  Certainly looks like it could be a fake.........though no doubt someone will say it is the ghost of this 1920's child in the Wem picture.

I saw that in a blog yesterday - sadly I lost the link. If anyone has it, please post ...

Have a look here too http://www.kuxas.com/94/spooky-case-of-the-wem-ghost.html

My fade doesn't seem to make any difference at all so I'm not convinced it is working on my computer.

I can't get the fade to work either.  Another good link though.

Fade works fine with my PC (Windows XP, Mozilla Firefox).
Looks quite convincing .

Perhaps neither photos are fakes and they both show the same ghost :)  - I think this post will kill off an credibility I had left :)

Um, MS, just to let you in on it: the 'original' image that The Sun is running is doctored.  The one that The Mail ran is the real postcard.  She's out of focus in it.  There's an original of this one at a local antique market I've seen.

Is it the same girl?  Meh, could be.

Do you have a copy of the postcard? If so, any chance you could scan it in and post it here?

Unfortunetly no, I went over yesterday after I posted thinking to do just that  and someone had already bought it.

If anyone else sees one, please scan.

Yeah, I noticed that as well. In The Mail postcard, you cannot see the girl's face clearly. In The Sun Postcard, you can see the girl's face, and it is exactly like the one in the original photo.
