Tonight Eric and his guest, Spookaroo Susan Barrett, discuss The Cottingley Fairies! In 1917, two English girls, Elsie Wright and Francis Griffiths, claimed to have met a band of fairies while playing near a brook...and they had pictures to prove it!
Even Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, creator of Sherlock Holmes, wanted to believe the pictures were real. Soon believers and skeptics alike were demanding answers from Elsie and Francis...but they were reluctant to discuss the whole affair in public...until 60 years later or so!
