If You Think Ghost Hunting is “Weird”…
Have you met people who think ghost hunting is a “weird” hobby? Maybe you think it’s kind of weird, yourself? Well, imagine if your hobby was like this woman’s…
It’s a 1944 photo from the (U.S.) Library of Congress.
Yes, it’s a little old woman, wearing a dress, a hat, and an apron.
And she’s a gravedigger.
The notes with this photo say, “Meet Mrs. Josephine Smith, aged 84, whose hobby is digging graves. She lives in Drouin, a typical little farming town (1100 people), in southern Australia, 60 miles out of the Victorian capital, Melbourne. …”
Maybe I’ve lived an insulated life, but in all my decades of trekking around haunted cemeteries, I’ve never met anyone digging a grave “for fun.”
