Looks quite convincing .

Also works with Chrome. In the postcard there is a boundary between two different bits of wall. There is a line in the other photo in precisely the same position!

Here's something to ponder: this image was taken in 1995. 

While it's easy enough to make it look realisitic now, could it have been done then?

Note: the image really is on the negative.  This was taken with a film camera rather then a digital unit.

So: is it a double exposure type spirit image?  If so, the girl is scaled up with remarkable skill.
