11. Watertown Phantom Faces
The oldest unsolved photograph on our list depicts two S.S. Waterton crew members – James Courtney and Michael Meehan. They died on board of the ship, as a result of a gas leak that wouldn’t have been discovered otherwise. After they were buried at sea, Courtney and Meehan came back in the form of reflections that stuck around long enough to be photographed by the captain.
Sure, we’ll never know if that’s how those two sailors look. But the integrity of the photo is undeniable and who would dare question the integrity of 74 S.S. Waterton crew members?
