Ghost shows up in couples selfie at a New Orleans restaurant (video)

ORLEANS -- New Orleans is no stranger to hauntings.  A couple from West Virginia found this out during a visit last year.

Ian Wrin and April Russ were visiting New Orleans and ate at Tujague's, the city's second-oldest restaurant.

"(Ian and April) were dining here and they took a selfie," said Poppy Tooker, author and Radio Host of Louisiana Eats. "When they got home and looked through the photographs, they noticed something hovering over the diners behind them, with a glowing orb and thought...what is that?!"

In the Begue Room, there are no windows or doors for a reflection to appear, according to Tooker.

"That's Julian Eltinge!  That's Tujague's cross-dressing ghost," Tooker said.

According to Tooker, who spoke to WGNO:

This ghost story begins with famous actor of the stage and screen, Julian Eltinge.  Eltinge starred alongside Rudolph Valentino in the silent film, "Aisle of Love", and even had his own cosmetics line.  Tooker said that Eltinge was a cross-dresser, whose alter ego was Vesta Tilley.
