A Sunday Best Portrait
Believe it or not, I've got four copies of this real photo postcard in my collection, and they've all got that ghosted affect. My best guess is that the film was loaded incorrectly in the camera, with the focal plane just a bit off. For non film people, that means that the film was buckled in some way, and part of it was further form the lens than it should have been.
This image is one of the first pictures I ever bought. I've had it in my collection for around fifty years, give or take. All I can remember is that I picked it up in western Pennsylvania.
