Ghostly Image

Maybe it's 'cause it is almost Halloween that I happened to notice this...I was busy scanning some old photos for some new designs for greeting cards this afternoon and came upon this photo in an album I had borrowed from my father:

Is it just me, or do you also see a little boy "driving" this automobile?  My father has not had a chance to look at it yet, but I also emailed him this image.  This photo was obviously not altered by me or anyone else.  It is from the late 1930's/early 1940's and was taken in New York.  One of the women in it is my Great Aunt (she is on the far left, almost out of the picture), but other than that I have no other information on this photo.

At first glance, there is nothing too odd in particular, but look closer- the boy's entire body can be seen through the vehicle.  And the car's door is shut.  You may also notice another "face" or spectral image in the vicinity of the older gentleman's body.

Some may say it was a double exposure, a reflection from another car; some sort of glitch.  But I like to think of it as a cool, eery, and other-wordly image. Either way, I think it fits in perfectly this time of year, don't you?
