My friend was a real estate agent and amateur photographer. She and I went to Fosters and she wanted some photos of room 25. It was mid day and the light through the window was good and she moved the wooden desk chair near the window so as to capture a dramatic shadow effect. After snapping a few photos, we left the room and shut the door. Immediately there was a loud scraping sound followed by a large THUD on the wall. After exchanging an excited look, we reopened the door to find the wooden chair on the opposite side of the room. Right where it was before she moved it near the window.
True story 100%.
Attached is a photo I took just last night, actually, after eating in the restaurant. The dark staircase has always held a sense of fascination for me.
My baby cried & cried in rm 21 I could not see anything but knew something was by the shower. I also heard walking in the hallway in the middle of the night.
