Ghostly images of the past, an artist’s interpretation

Kevin Weir has taken historic images, now available to anyone via the Library of Congress online archive, and added a freaky twist to them.  He recreated the images as animated gifs, and then added a freakishly eerie element to the photos.  The results might be reminiscent of a scene from the movie The Ring, or War of the Worlds. Check it out below.
