ON THIS DAY…… 24th September 1917

Henry Palmer, aged 30 years, was a lime burner in the Lara district, supplying quicklime for the city of Melbourne as well as around Geelong. Palmer was sent
before the Geelong Police Court on the 24th of September 1917 on a charge of having committed an offence against his step-daughter. He was remanded for a week, and bail was allowed at the sum of £100. Palmer was sentenced to 3 years hard labourer at the Geelong Gaol. The young woman concerned was remanded on a charge of vagrancy.

 

On this day …….. 4th September 1905

John Beckett, who was charged at the Melbourne City Court on this day in 1905 with insulting behaviour, implored a constable to lock him up. He said that seven years ago he murdered a man named Small in Tasmania by striking him with a stick, and had been haunted by his ghost ever since. He said he had been tried in Launceston for the offence. Beckett was remanded for medical observation.

We recently had a photo sent in from a customer who had taken pictures while in a small group on a Ghost tour here at the Geelong Gaol.  The first photo is from the customer, the second is taken by Twisted History the following night of one of our guides standing in the same spot.  These are as they have come off the phone cameras and not been edited at all, besides putting them side by side .  What are your thoughts on them?
