An interesting story. The fact it went on so long and thought of as real makes it worth a good rating. I guess people just don't want to believe young girls can lie and deceive. Having three daughters I KNOW they can not only do it but do it effectively.

So simple yet so effective. I guess it just comes down to the simple fact that people want to believe in things like this, and just a small piece of evidence, either fake or real, can convince them.

This is great. Two pubescent girls fool the Edwardian world with some paper cut outs and a camera. Hilarious.

About Cottingley Fairies
In 1917 Elsie Wright(16) and Frances Griffiths(10) presented a series of photographs proving the existence of fairies. By modern standards the photos are anything but convincing or great quality. For its time however the photos were believed. So much in fact that Sir Arthur Conan Doyle became involved in an effort to help the girls prove they were real. 60 years later the girls admitted they were fake.
