Man Using Google Streetview Spots Two Ghouls Peering out the Windows of The Stuart Hotel.
While browsing Google Street View for fish and chip shops in Walton, Twitter user ‘Lallana Experiment’ made an eerie discovery when he came across The Stuart Hotel in Liverpool.
“I was looking on Google Street View to find a fish and chip shop in Walton, and I came across The Stuart Hotel.” He said. “Something in the top left hand window caught my eye. It looks like a ghostly image of an evil-looking face.”
“Look closely and it looks like it is breathing on the inside of the window.
Next to the face is what looks like a man in a tuxedo and dickey bow.”
Tom Slemen, a local paranormal expert, says The Stuart Hotel is no stranger to the paranormal. “I cannot vouch for the authenticity of the faces in the windows; they do look eerie though.” Tom said when speaking with the Liverpool Echo.
“There are 150 haunted pubs in Liverpool, and the Stuart Hotel is one of them, although, as far as I know, most of the ghostly goings-on happened in the pub’s past.”
Tom explains that in 1897, the pub’s then landlord, Robinson Pemberton, reported hearing mysterious scratching noises that were coming from the cellar. At first, he believed the noises were coming from a rat. However, the noises started getting louder. They became so loud in fact, the neighboring home owners claimed they could hear them.
Three days later, the pub was shaken from top to bottom by an unseen force. The noises stopped after the incident, but it wasn’t long before another string of strange events occurred. One night, a drinker supposedly knocked three times on the pub’s walls one night. He was shocked when he heard three knocks answer back.
Mysterious noises began emanating from the cellar once again. The sounds of a distant ringing bell were also heard for a week. These unexplainable events continued to go on until one day, a priest from St. Mary’s Church left a Bible in the pub’s cellar. Since that day, no one has reported hearing any unusual sounds coming from the cellar.
While the image is indeed creepy, I’m not convinced these were actual spirits. In my opinion, it’s highly likely that these were either mannequins that were purposefully set up by the window or two people dressed in costumes who were waiting for the Google Street View car to drive by and capture this creepy sight.
With all that being said, I’d still very much like to know your thoughts on this image. Do you think it shows a pair of real ghosts? Or might these two figures simply be mannequins or costumed people?
