The Wem fire ghost girl was faked using a postcard.

Taken in 1995 when the building was on fire. Look closely! This one may have been a fake. On extreme zoom, professionals say the face seems to have a different grain than the rest. Also there was a local postcard with a young girl’s face which was very similar that may have been used in transferring to this picture. Suspected false, but you never know.

 Some ghost pictures are only exciting because of the urban legions that surrounds them. In this example there is no evidence that this location ever had a tragedy.
