William Mumbler - 1860s

William Mumbler is credited with creating the first photo to show a ghost in the 1860s. But it infect wasn't a ghost at all, it was simply an accidental case of double exposing a negative while taking photograph of himself.The entrepreneur in him turned this into a business, where members of the public would have their portrait exposed with an image of a dead relative.
