Spooky picture eh? This was taken in the tunnel that leads from Ellis Hall to the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon. But let me give you a bit of history here...
According to my sources (Google and a good friend) Ellis Hall was designed and built as part of the University's Medical Complex that included the Medical College Building and the University Hospital. As with the other two buildings, it was clad in locally quarried greystone. Opened in January of 1956, the Hall was designed by Webster and Gilbert to meet the needs of the 275 students in the School of Nursing who would study on campus, work in the hospital and live in residence. With the opening of the University Hospital in 1954, a basic 3-year diploma program was established aimed at producing bedside nurses. Board and room, laundry and uniforms were provided without charge. In addition an allowance of six, eight and ten dollars per month for first, second and third years respectively was granted. The Hall was named after Kathleen Ellis, who served from 1938 to 1950 as the School of Nursing's first director. It has the distinction of being the only building on campus named in honour of a woman. Today Ellis Hall is linked by a walkway to the 1979 Hospital Addition and is still home to the College of Nursing.
So, the photo was taken by a might worker (maintenance worker from what I have heard). As he was walking through the tunnel, he had an odd feeling. He took this picture on his cell phone in the autumn of 2011. That pink thing at the bottom left is his finger. When some look at this photo they think it must be "doctored" (pardon the pun) in some way. But energetically this photo gives off the distinct vibe of a "ghost in the house." In the far back you can also see some shapes lying on the floor. Some think they look like dead bodies. I don't know what these actually are. But I do think that the ghost is an actual apparition.
What does she want? Who knows? Why is she there? Don't know that either. I have not had opportunity to talk with her in person. But what I do know is that when I was attending the University of Saskatchewan I did have a few encounters of my own that were at best quite weird, and at worst, downright scary. So it doesn't surprise me that something was found here in Ellis Hall. Frankly, after years and years and YEARS of seeing and talking with the dead, I am just glad that this time someone ELSE got to have that wee experience instead of me. I am also glad that this one was caught in a photograph. That brings it home to those who may scoff at the experience. So congratulations, Mr. Maintenance Worker! Oh, and WELCOME TO MY WORLD!
