Not sure Kevin, looks like circles to me (portholes?) ~x(

anyway, found a few more that I thought were just more of the postcard views but I don't think I have seen these exact pictures before

From the positions of the jaunting cars and the people sitting on the shore wall, photos 1 & 3 are the same photo with slight alterations. An early example of airbrushing??

Good spotting, I thought so at first, but on closer inspection I would think that both pictures where taken fairly close to each other time wise (one with the sun out, and one not) - there are too many subtle shadows and other artefacts for any photographer in those days to fix - I have merged both pictures, the "ghost" figures are from the first picture blended with the other one.

I like the "blended" picture Brian :-):-) ..... the "ghostly' images seem very appropriate
