O'Rahilly claims there are no special effects on this picture. It was taken with a 200mm lens from across the road. At the time O'Rahilly and other onlookers were stopped by police and firefighters from approaching the burning town hall. It was only after the image was developed that O'Rahilly saw the little girl. He immediately sent it to the Association for the Scientific Study of Anomalous Phenomena. They, in turn, sent the photo and the negative to Dr. Vernon Harrison, former president of the Royal Photographic Society. Dr. Harrison analysed both the photo and negative and reported that he was satisfied that the picture had not been doctored.
