In 2004, the Barlorne-Pioneer Museum displayed an exhibit called "Their Past Lives Here," which included a photo that had been hidden from public view. The photo was taken in 1941, during the reopening of Canada's South Fork Bridge. In 2010, the museum digitized its collection and made it available online, and some internet users noticed something unusual in the photo: one of the men appeared to be wearing clothes that were too modern for the time period. This sparked a conspiracy theory that the man was a time traveler. However, further investigation revealed that the man's clothes, including a logo t-shirt, wrap-around sunglasses, and a small portable camera, were all available in the 1940s. Therefore, the theory of a time traveler is not supported by the evidence available.

The Tulip Staircase Ghost

The Queen's House, located in the heart of London, has been a subject of fascination for generations. In 1966, a retired Canadian reverend and his wife were among the many visitors to the famous Tulip Staircase, and they took a photograph to commemorate their visit. It wasn't until they returned home and developed the photo that they realized something was amiss: a shrouded figure seemed to be ascending the stairs in pursuit of one or two others.

Upon further inspection, the Hardys were certain that the staircase had been empty at the time the photograph was taken, and a subsequent investigation failed to uncover any rational explanation for the mysterious apparition. As the Reverend later wrote in a letter, the enigma of the Tulip Staircase remained as inscrutable as ever, defying all attempts to explain the seemingly inexplicable. It's just one of many enigmas that haunt the Queen's House, a place where the line between fact and fiction can be difficult to discern.
