The photo, showing what some believe to be the ghost of a little girl in Bertha’s Mussels ‘ third floor window at Fell’s Point, was taken between 7 pm and 9 pm on Saturday night by Joseph Henry, resident of Annapolis, who was on a haunted pub tour with his family.
At the time the photo was taken, none of them had seen something odd in the window. They only noticed the anomalous blue form when they looked at the photo afterwards.
“I remember saying, what is that blue light ?” said Henry. “Is that a hand ? We were like, oh my God.”
When the couple showed the photo to the tour guide, it was initially believed by their business partner that it was Photoshopped until it was pointed out that it had been taken moments before.
“People email us ghost photos all the time, but I’ve never seen anything like this,” she said.
The building in question-Bertha’s Mussels -is no stranger to legends of ghosts.
Some say it’s haunted by a little girl’s ghost that a staff member who had gone upstairs to get a ketchup supply from a storage room was famously seen one night.
He described how she wore a frilly white dress of the period.
“There are definitely things that make the hair on the back of your neck stand up from time to time,” said owner Andy Norris. “I don’t let it freak me out too much, I’m a bit a skeptic.”
