The Spiral Staircase ghost picture was taken in the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. In 1966, a retired clergyman was visiting the museum and decided to take a photo of the staircase. When he returned home and had the film developed, it showed a strange hooded figure lurking at the bottom of the stairs, clutching the bannister with both hands. Experts who examined the negative concluded that it had not been tampered with.
Staff who work in the museum have seen ghostly figures near the spiral staircase. They have also heard unexplained footsteps echoing through the halls. One even saw a ghostly apparition frantically mopping up a pool of blood at the bottom of the staircase. Apparently, 300 years ago, a maid was thrown off the highest bannister and plunged 50 feet to her death.
