1800s Ghost Moms OR Yay, Photoshop! [One More Thing Before We Go]

Have you ben thoroughly creeped out yet today? No? Well, these ghost mom photographs ought to do the trick. From i09:

Even in the late 1800s, getting a confused baby to sit still for a photograph forced otherwise normal parents to behave like lunatics. Sometimes it required the mother to hide herself under a carpet so it looked like their child was sitting upright of his or her own volition.

Other tactics involved the parent creeping in the background or inserting a phantom limb into the shot. In any case, these attempts at naturalistic portraits produced anything but. 

Go to i09 to see even more creepy shots.
