As often happens, Spirits do work in various way and are often "playing" or testing. This is most probably not the same sitting as on the photograph above to right, as can be seen on the lady's clothing and shoes. This Ectoplasmic Rod lies on the sitters hand but is attached to this tambourine.
Two women with a spirit The face of a young woman appears over the woman on the right of the photograph. The reverse of the photograph reads: 'Why is the child always pushing to the front?' and 'Do we get messages from the higher spirits?'; perhaps questions the women wanted answering. One of the sitters, at Hope's request, has signed the plate for authentication. Collection of National Media Museum
