Okay, here’s the deal:
A few years ago (I’m going from memory on all of this, so it may not be totally accurate), someone posted a link here to an Ebay auction for an old photograph. It was of a person standing in front of an old building, and the photograph was evidently pretty old, too (sepia-toned, and all). The figure had their hands covered (I don’t remember if it was gauze or gloves, but they were covered), and had something wrong with their head.
There was some debate over this picture, as no-one could quite tell exactly what was going on with the person’s face. Some thought it may have been a halloween mask, some thought they may have been a burn victim, some thought it may have been photoshopped (one “P” or two?), but I don’t recall any satisfying conclusion to the mystery.
As I recall, during the course of the thread, someone posted a link to another photograph that seemed to be shot in front of the same building (and thus was connected with the first one). It was also strange and ambiguous, IIRC.
I’ve tried searching for the thread, but can’t find it. Does anyone remember this, and (more importantly) does anyone know where I can find the image(s) in question? They creeped me out at the time, but I didn’t save them, and now I wish I had.
Any help would be appreciated, but I’ll probably have nightmares as a result. You will be forgiven for that, of course, since I asked.
But, YEESH! They were weird.
