In this glass slide, a man looks up to his right at an illuminated spirit.

Many spirit images seem to be of people partially covered in robes that are superimposed into the image. The 'spirit' in this image looks very much like it was created from a pre-existing photograph, suggesting that the female spirit was perhaps someone known to the sitter.
