Couple with a female spirit A woman's face appears above the couple - identified at the time as the sister of a man prominent in the Spiritualist Church. Her cloak adds to the ethereal effect. The signature in the upper left hand corner is by one of the sitters, to authenticate the plate. The couple are the parents of the person who compiled the spirit album.

Giving Aokigahara forest a run for its money as creepiest place ever is Mount Everest. One of the worst things about scaling Mount Everest, besides the lack of oxygen & hellish conditions, are the dead bodies everywhere. Over 200 people have died in the attempt, and most are still there. The same conditions that make it so dangerous to survive the climb also help preserve the dead bodies. Recovering the dead would be a dangerous and expensive risk. Often the bodies are used as landmarks.
