Duncan materialises a baby
Here we see ectoplasm emerging from the
nostril of one of Scotland's most famous materialisation mediums ever,
This photograph was taken by Harvey Metcalfe, F.C.I.S., during Helen
Duncan's early stages of development as a materialisation medium. It
should be pointed out that the materialisations at this stage were
experimental and were not intended to resemble deceased persons.
As can be seen below, Helen Duncan's feet were tied up and both hands
were held by two sitters. The materialisation clears shows an attempt to
materialise a baby. (The blindfold is to minimise the shock which the
flashlight could cause to the eyes of the medium, who is extremely
sensitive during this stage of the phenomena.).
