In a Baltimore restaurant, in a building that dates back to the eighteenth century, an eerie photo captured a convincing image that’s believed to be the ghost of a little girl who haunts the location.
Ghost girl at Bertha’s Mussels in Fell’s Point, Baltimore
A couple who were on the Baltimore Ghost Tours captured the image, that they believe is the ghost of a little girl rumored to haunt the location.
The couple took the photograph while standing on the street at night, outside the building that houses a restaurant.
They captured an image that shows the face of a semi-transparent little girl behind a third-floor window, extending her arm through the glass, protruding outdoors.
The image was taken sometime between 9 and 10 PM.
Restaurant staff afraid to go on the upper floors
The staff that works at Bertha’s Mussels in Fell’s Point, Baltimore are afraid of the haunting ghosts that appear with regularity inside the building that houses the restaurant.
Ghostly sightings and paranormal activities have been reported numerous times on the second floor, so much so – the staff won’t go up to the floor alone. The second floor is where the restaurant maintains a storeroom.
In one incident, a staffer had to go to the upstairs storeroom and when he opened a closet door, he saw a little girl standing inside, illuminated by a little patch of moonlight.
He estimated she was about eight years old. She was dressed in a white dress of the frilly style commonplace during the 1800s.
He says she gave him a surprised expression and then vanished into thin air.
The third-floor photograph recently captured of the little girl in a window sits directly above the second-floor storage room where the worker encountered the ghost.
The building was a boardinghouse in the late 1700s through the 1800s. Many believe the ghostly girl may have lived there.
Outbreaks of yellow fever killed many people during that time, including children.
Image shocks Baltimore Ghost Tours owners
Even the owners of Baltimore Ghost Tours were shocked when the couple emailed them the image at the ghost girl captured from the third-floor window.
“People email us ghost photos all the time, but I’ve never seen anything like this,” said Melissa Rowell, co-owner of Baltimore Ghost Tours which leads tours at a number of haunted spots across the area.
Their Baltimore ghost tour takes people through at least 13 area haunts. Experts handle each different tour, as 11 tour guides provide different and unique perspectives of a ghost story on the haunting adventure.
Rowell told a reporter that most of the photos they receive from people who take their tour typically show orbs, or balls of lights, normally associated with spirits.
But Rowell added: “I’ve never seen anything that looks like the human form.”
Now she has, in a photo that challenges the most hardened skeptic.
