The Phantom of St. Paulís Episcopal Church
  • Let me start by saying I love the movable panoramic shot at the top. The article is very interesting for a few reasons. First is the image of people hearing strange music emanating from a locked church in the middle of the night. There are a couple dated ideas, that bear some thought. First is that children are too timid to do anything as brazen as break into places and mess around in the night, especially spooky place like a dark church--this is 1892 afterall. Second is the mistrust of a respected man being out on the street at that time of night to hear the mysterious music. Is this one an American thing? 1888 saw the Jack the Ripper killings and while many may have been of ill-repute people were about at night in the cities, consider though the history of segmented sleep. There is also the gathering of people looking to hear the music repeat another night.
